Kickstarter Fundraisers Debut $150 Computer

After their Kickstarter campaign raised $1.5 million for the project, a group of entrepreneurs have released Kano, a $150 computer intended for young people aged 6 to 14 that provides owners the materials needed to assemble and code their own customized machine capable of playing games, streaming video, and accessing the internet. What do you think?

“This could be just the thing to get young people interested in computers.”
