Brief: Kickstarter Success Kano Announces New Computer Kit “Raspberry Pi 3”

This week, Kickstarter alum Kano announced its latest upgrade, Raspberry Pi 3. The DIY computer kit reportedly has new games and art-making challenges that are all sharable through Kano World, a creative community for tech beginners.

Kano Computer KitAlex Klein, Kano founder and CEO, stated:

“For three years, Kano has worked to demystify the world of low-cost computing. The new Raspberry Pi 3 brings more power and connectivity to the world’s simplest computer kit.”

The company revealed that the Kano Kit equipped with Raspberry Pi 3 offers a 64 bit 1.2GHz quad Cortex A53 processor, with 1GB or ram– that’s a 50% performance uplift over Raspberry Pi 2; VideoCore IV Graphics Processor at a rapid 400 mhz as opposed to the Raspberry Pi 2’s 250 mhz; and Onboard 802.11n Wireless LAN and Bluetooth. There is also an optional experimental GL desktop driver, which means that all the graphics are rendered in the GPU instead of in the CPU, to run games easier.

The new upgrade is available for $35.
