Got Hackers for Kids?

Do you have a kid (or know one) who loves to tear things apart to see how they work? You know, those tinkerers who leave parts and pieces all over the house. Ever stepped in Legos in the middle of the night? Yeah, that kid. Well, if you have a creative child, aka wanna-be hacker, in the family and are looking for the perfect gift to give them, we have a great idea for you.

The Kano Computer (pictured above) is a sweet little kit that allows kids to build a tablet and then play games and program on it, all the while learning Python, Javascript, and Terminal commands. There’s even a cool Hack Minecraft game. No, this isn’t an ad for Kano. We just think that if “The Woz” wishes he would have had one of these when he was a kid, it must be pretty cool.
