Ever wonder how a computer works? Well now you (or your kid at home) could easily build one with Kano. It’s a DIY computer kit that is as simple as putting together Lego blocks. It comes with a Raspberry Pi Model B powered by an ARM 700MHz CPU and 512MB RAM, and instead of boring manuals, it gives you a color book with illustrated instructions. Inside the box you will find cables, a keyboard, a speaker, a WiFi dongle, a preloaded SD card so you can start rightaway. They even give you stickers to keep the fun. On top of all that it is designed to teach you to code, in a very simple and entertaining way. For $149.99 I’d grab one of these and skip the academy.
