Assemble Your Own Computer

Buy a computer for $99 and put it together in 107 seconds is now possible! Based on simple steps, physical computing, and play, Kano is the computer anyone can make, as affirmed in its slogan.

It comes as a toolkit that can be assembled like a Lego, to start coding immediately using visual programming languages hooked up to games. The set includes a minicomputer powered by Raspberry Pi, games, a speaker, a wireless server and a custom case.

“We often draw lines between things: art and science, code and design, STEM and humanities. It makes "digital literacy" seem like Brussels sprouts -- good for you, but hard to chew" the team says on Kano Kickstarter page.

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
