A new development kit for the famed Raspberry Pi offers users the chance to build their own computer in just a couple of minutes.

The credit-card sized Raspberry Pi has now sold more than two million units and has powered an amazingly diverse array of computer projects (including replicating Felix Baumgartner's skydiving record with a teddy) but some fans worry that the computer’s bare bones aesthetics are putting people off.

Kano aims to fix this, offering a “computer and coding kit for all ages” that is “simple as Lego [and] powered by Pi”. Buying the Kano gets you everything you need to set up a computer apart from a display: there’s a manual, an operating system on a SD card, a keyboard with built-in touchpad, all the necessary cables and – of course – the Raspberry Pi itself.
