Kano PC

Kano and Microsoft let your kids build their own Windows PC.

Meet the new Kano PC. Kano and Microsoft partnered up to make a build-your-own Windows computer for creative learning. The Kano PC is available for pre-order now, for $299.99 online at the Microsoft Store.

The 11.6” touch-enabled, Intel Atom powered 2-in-1 laptop takes kids on a journey into computing, and comes with a suite of creative and coding tools, which the computer guides you through.

Out of the box, you follow a step-by-step storybook, to connect the parts, which are replaceable; you watch LEDs on the printed circuit board light up, you explore the labeled components with a magnifying glass, before attaching the transparent case back, and a full sized keyboard cover.

The Kano PC provides tools to demystify technology, and to make almost anything. When it comes to life, a step-by-step journey begins onscreen. You start with the exclusive ‘How Computers Work’ experience, an app that lets you create emojis with binary code, tinker with touch and sound, and play with the processor and memory, learning exactly what your computer is doing when you tap keys, talk into the mic, or touch the screen.

Important draw for kids is the pre-installed Minecraft Education Edition.

The Kano PC also comes with:

Make Art – Learn to code high-quality images in Coffeescript

Kano App – Make almost anything, including magic effects and adventurous worlds, with simple steps and programming fundamentals

Paint 3D – Make and share 3D models and send them out for printing

Microsoft Teams – To get new projects and content, and share your work

Kano Projects – Personalized projects on coding and creativity delivered directly to your dashboard

Kano and Microsoft are supporting the PC’s content experience with hundreds of hours of curriculum, which lets anyone introduce computer science in the classroom in a simple and fun way.

Preloaded with Windows 10 in S mode, compatible with the powerful Office Suite, and replete with optimized software and parent/teacher dashboards - the Kano PC is a safe creative playground for both school and home.

The Kano PC also connects you to the free, online community, Kano World, where you can make, share, and play, in a safe space with hundreds of thousands of makers in 150 countries, who have posted more than a million real applications, and written over 70 million lines of code.

The Kano PC is available for pre-order now and ships October 21.
