We love Kano. We’ve talked about the computer kit, — a DIY collection that allows children to take a nuts and bolts approach to building and operating a PC — and just over a week ago, the screen kit, an HD LCD screen that that kids can build themselves.
Now, the London-based startup has done it again with its new open source operating system for the $5 Pi Zero announced last week.
“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
Kano OS comes with all of the features that we know and love from the Kano computer kit, such as:
- Coding and computing challenges: advance onto making a video, playing and modifying Snake, Pong and Minecraft to learn the basics of changing or modifying code; and making music with Sonic Pi to put it all together in actual written code.
- Kano World: an open community for kids to share their creations where over 9 million lines of code have been already been written.
The free download takes all of five minutes to download and install on your Pi Zero and you can grab it at the link below.
