Building a computer can be a daunting task, it's no wonder Kano has created this fantastic kit that gives you all the components and guidance required to get a handle on it! This award winning computer kit comes with a polished, illustrated instructional guide alongside Kano OS, a Linux OS distribution loaded with a ton of graphical, informational computer programs.
Follow the guide, and in no time at all you'll have a decent grip on how your computer goes together and what the peripheral ports are used for. The computer assembly process of this kit is so simple but effective that we absolutely love it.
Once you've assembled your kit, you take a journey from the terminal line, communicating with your computer with simple words and binary digits into the world of pixels and color. It's all explained by your computer's voice along the way, making the learning process a great deal of fun. Once you've gone through this clever analogy of the OS setup and login process you land on your Kano Dashboard with all the creative, programming applications that come with it at your fingertips.
The Kit comes with:
- A Raspberry Pi 3 Model B
- A Wireless Keyboard with touchpad (charging cable included)
- A DIY Speaker with connectors for plugging it into your Pi
- A custom case that is clear plastic with Speaker Mount.
- 5V 2.5A DC Plugpack
- A Memory Card loaded with Kano OS, ready to plug and play.
- A 1 meter HDMI cable for display connectivity
- An illustrated guide for assembly
- 4 Sheets of stickers and cards for decorating and personalizing your computer
