Kano, the company behind DIY coding kits has announced a new Harry Potter-themed coding kit alongside their partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
The kit allows Harry Potter fans of all ages to build your own wand and then use it to code and create in more than 70 coding languages.
The wand connects with Kano’s software and companion mobile app to “capture movements and turn them into rich effects.”
“We’re surrounded by technology in our homes, workplaces and pockets, yet only a small percent of people, less than 1% of 1%, understand the happenings behind the screen,” said Alex Klein, Co-Founder and CEO of Kano. “We are thrilled to partner with Warner Bros Consumer Products to inspire people of all ages, all over the world to make their own code, and see how easy it can be to understand, play and create with it.”
When building you wand, you’ll learn about the sensors, data and code that it encompasses. The Kano app will feature challengers across six settings from the Wizarding World including, Hogwarts, Diagon Alley and The Forbidden Forest.
Kano’s app is available on Android and iOS as well as on Windows 10 and Mac. The Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit is available for pre-order now for $129.99 CAD ($99.99 USD) and goes on sale in Canada, the US, the UK, Australia and New Zealand starting October 1st.
