The Kano Camera Kit is the first camera you build and code yourself. Yes, you can make it do many things any normal camera can do (Zzz, booring!). Or, with Kano Code, a few simple code blocks and a little imagination, you can make it do some really, really fun things.
1. RANDOM COLOR FLASH
Camera + Kano Code + Love of color
Let’s start with an easy one. With just a few simple code blocks you can make the camera flash a different color every time you press the trigger! Blue, yellow, red, orange, purple, electric violet, cyclamen, green… you get the picture.
2. GIF FACTORY
Camera + Kano Code + Cat
You can make your own GIFS or stop-frame animations instantly. Of yourself, your cat (that one below is mine), those action figures you have stashed in a cupboard, or just about anything! Save your GIF whenever you’re ready and upload it for your friends to see.
Camera + Macro Lens + Gesture Sensor
Take super close, detailed shots like a microscope. Get up close and personal on scientific studies of plants. Or just make awesome shots of your eye like this one.
Go one step further, plug in the Gesture Sensor and use it to make noise when the camera is in focus!
4. ALBUM COVER CAM
Camera + Kano Code + Cool pose
A filter that makes any photo you take look like a super-cool album cover, instantly. Make the text random for every shot and see what magic comes out.
5. ANGER SELFIE
Camera + In-built mic + Kano Code
The camera automatically takes angry green selfies when you make a loud noise. The louder you are, the greener you become! Try shouting “CHEESE”. Or “BLURRRGH” (that’s the noise you make when you stick your tongue out).
6. CRITTER CAM
Camera + Tripwire Sensor + Sense of adventure
Use the Tripwire Sensor, to snap animals in your garden at night time. See what amazing creatures sneak around under the cover of darkness.
Be even cleverer and with just a few blocks of code add live time, date and weather information, so you know exactly when the image was taken.
7. CLOUD CAM
Camera + Weather Data + Umbrella
Like beautiful photos of stormy clouds? Want to grab great snaps of sunny skies? Don’t wait around all day. With just a few code blocks and some live weather data you can make your camera automatically take pictures based on the weather.
8. CLICK TWIST DRUM MACHINE
Camera + Kano Code + Sense of rhythm
When is a camera not a camera? When you code it to be a drum machine. That’s right, why just take pictures with your camera, why not code it to create music too?!
9. FREE FALL CAM
Camera + Tilt Sensor + Good hands
Plug in the Tilt Sensor. Throw your camera into the air and see the amazing photos it snaps on it’s way down, thanks to the accelerometer. Then catch your camera. Or miss it and feel sad.
10. EMOJI CAM
Camera + Stickers + Sense of fun
Automatically replace friend’s faces with funny stickers or emojis. Make the stickers random so you never know what they’ll come out as!
