Three Raspberry Pi Powered Creative Learning Kits

Raspberry Pi is currently one of the hottest devices to build your own creative IoTs, computers and learning kits. But one of the biggest selling points of these kits is the price. Cheap, open source and easy-to-learn, creative kits make it great fun with kids and family alike.

The popularity of Raspberry Pi has made it possible for many other startups to use it as the basis for their commercial products. MyCroft, is one such creative device that we reviewed earlier that builds an Alexa like AI assistant on top of a Pi.

Kano Kit – An idea worth betting the future of your kids education

It was not long ago, when Kano announced their intentions through a Kickstarter campaign to build a “computer and coding kit for all ages” powered by a Raspberry Pi. They asked for a meager US$100,000 to achieve their ambitious goal. The idea was an instant hit with backers. Within a short time, Kano amassed over 13,000 backers which ultimately resulted in 1.5million dollars successfully raised for the project!

The kit consists of a Raspberry Pi computer, hooked with a speaker, a wireless keyboard and connected to the internet through Wifi. The computer can be connected to any monitor/LCD screen through the provided HDMI cable.
