Build your own touchscreen PC with Kano’s latest computer kit – and then start coding

You’ve got the touch

Kids these days. They don’t remember when your computer showed up as a kit you put together yourself, and sat there expecting you to learn to code on it. Until now, that is, because Kano’s Computer Kit Touch (£279.99) invites you to build your own PC – and because it’s 2018 and not 1980, it’s got a 10.1-inch touchscreen too. In fact, it’s got way more than that – a wireless keyboard, speakers, cables, a battery, a Raspberry Pi, a mic, and a bunch of stickers for plastering all over your face when it all gets a bit too much. When the kit’s finally complete, tutorials take you from block-based coding to full-on Terminal commands. And who wouldn’t want to become a coding genius when armed with a seriously cool and chunky touchscreen PC with a bright orange keyboard?

I’m a regular contributor to Stuff magazine and Stuff.tv, covering apps, games, Apple kit, Android, Lego, retro gaming and other interesting oddities. I also pen opinion pieces when the editor lets me, getting all serious about accessibility and predicting when sentient AI smart cookware will take over the world, in a terrifying mix of Bake Off and Terminator.

Areas of expertise

Mobile apps and games, Macs, iOS and tvOS devices, Android, retro games, crowdfunding, design, how to fight off an enraged smart saucepan with a massive stick.
