Kano PC: The ideal laptop to learn the programming and operation of a computer
This kit has educational purposes and was created for children, with a computer that carries Windows 10 S and he looks a lot like Microsoft Surfacealthough with much larger dimensions. The screen is touch-sensitive and has a size of 11.6 inches. It includes all the hardware of the Kano PC and also has a keyboard case to which it is attached.
Kano had already started DIY computers in the past, but they had Raspberry Pi on the inside, with ARM architecture and limited functionality. In this case, the computer carries a processor Intel Atom x5-Z8350 1.44 GHz and four kernels that we have seen so much in Chinese tablets in recent years. In the accompanying we find 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB the eMMC internal memory, with extension via microSD cards. The back is transparent and allows children to see how everything works inside.
In terms of connectivity, we found an HDMI port, a headphone jack, a microphone, two USB ports, in addition to WiFi and Bluetooth in the wireless section. As we said, at the software level, it has Windows 10 S; Win32 programs can not be installed and are limited to those available in the Microsoft Store. It is certain that someone will install Windows 10 normal on the device.
It costs 299.99 dollars, and you can already book
To assemble the computer, the company offers a detailed manual. There is also an application called "How Computers Work" which explains how computers work and introduces them to programming via Emoji and binary code. There will also be educational apps like Minecraft in its student version, or Paint 3D and Microsoft Teams.
With this, Kano wants to introduce the youngest to technology without becoming addicted to social networks from a very young age, as they approach content creation and understand how it works, what they use rather than d & # 39; be all consuming content all day without awakening their creativity.
PC Kano is available when booking on the web. Kano.me at the price of $ 299.99, and will unfortunately be available for the moment only in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom as of October 21st.
