Yes, anyone. From 6 to 106. It’s a real computer and screen you build yourself. Then, through simple steps, fun challenges and community projects you learn how to code.
A way for anyone to stumble onto their passion for computer technology. Kano makes it easy to do, so you don’t get frustrated too early.
The need to make it different, to make it better, is what drives me – Kano does this, it’s the first computer for everyone…

Make with a simple story
First you build the computer and screen. Step by step, page by page, using the simple storybooks. You don’t need tools, or a degree in engineering. Just like a LEGO kit, follow the simple steps in the books and learn as you make.
Build your computer bit by bit
Connect your screen
Bring your computer to life!
Learn real coding skills
Kano introduces you to a number of basic programming languages. Through typed code, Kano blocks and Linux commands you learn real code.
Python, which is great for web development.
Terminal commands, to control computers faster
Level up and learn
Be rewarded at every turn and get a real sense of progression. Step-by-step challenges level you up slowly. Game mechanics reward you. Our research and real-world testing has shown that, with this approach, computational confidence emerges. You fall into flow, and real skills follow.
