Since the Raspberry Pi system first sprung up we have seen a ton of Kickstarter projects looking to make it even better, the most recent project to join this list is Kano, a DIY computer that costs just $99 and is ready to set up in a couple of minutes.

Looking at that sentence your probably wondering how someone could back this kind of project, but given the fact that it has already raised over £535,000 with 26 days still to go, the project has already blasted past its original goal, the reason for which we think might be because it’s actually a bit more than a simple black box.

Designed to get anybody coding no matter the age, the Kano kit includes a Raspberry Pi Model B board, DIY speaker, keyboard, cabling, decorative materials and an instruction manual that shows you how to get started, with some information to get you coding.

Once booted you can load up the Kano OS of the included SD card and begin creating games and even modifying already existing games like Pong, Snake and Minecraft, which seems to be an easy to job for almost everyone with instruction books in English, Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin, and more coming soon, Kano is easily accessible for almost anyone, anywhere in the world and at almost any age.

To take a look at the Kano project and even pledge to get one for yourself, head on over to their project page.
