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.

What is your view on the coronavirus?

Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
