Kano 2: Creative Computing for All

One of the best things SEEN saw at the recent London Design Festival was the Kano computer kit, funded by Kickstarter with its creators mentored by Map. Following the success of the initial project, Kano is now raising funds for add-on kits: smart camera, speakers and lightboard, all of which were designed in collaboration with Map.

You learn as you build.
