Kano-XP

KANO-XP is a device for learning as opposed to other devices geared towards endless media consumption. Your starter kit is only the beginning - powered by a Raspberry Pi Compute Module; the possibilities are limitless when combined with various screens and controllers made by Kano and the community. Although designed for teenagers, any age group can use it. The modularity makes it a perfect tool for DJs as a soundboard or a synthesizer, or it could be the brains of a robot for a high school project. It is compatible with Kano’s sensor line and other accessories, including the headphones, keyboard and webcam. Once set up, you can use it to detect movement in a room, set up automation based on live data or simply as an MP3 player. With the Kano webcam, the KANO-XP could be used as a portable digital camera. Additional USB devices could be purchased or made; for example, an RF transmitter to control an RC car or an IR remote to interact with a television pairing multiple sensors together can create even more powerful interactions.
