Kano, a small British start up with strong Israeli ties, set out to make the inside workings of a modern computer accessible to children again. The idea behind the project is get kids coding and hacking themselves, and was inspired by one of the founders’ seven-year-old cousin who wanted to build a computer and wondered if it could be made as easy as playing with Lego.

Alex Klein, the co-founder in question, told ZDNet recently. “With our OS, they break the rules, share their creations with friends. We say: don’t start from scratch, start with these things that we offer, and make them yours.”

So how does the Kano kit measure up? Find out more in this ZDNet.com article.
