What's Kano?

Kano is a computer you build and code yourself.
Lego simple, Raspberry Pi powerful, and hugely fun.

And what’s inside?

Raspberry Pi 2

The Raspberry Pi 2 is the lightweight, powerful brain behind thousands of Kano creations. Its system-on-a-chip packs an 900MHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 and a 1GB RAM.


Manuals are boring. Kano is a story. With illustrated ideas and simple steps, build a computer, make stuff, and explore a new world. Make your own characters and level up.
