There are no words… Still, as ever, we’ll give it a go.
To see thousands making and playing with Kano – in bedrooms and basements, islands and deserts, young, old, alone, together, everywhere… This moment, without question, is the great privilege of our lives.
This is magic – and it’s only the beginning.
By the numbers
Since it all began last November, Kano has grown three-fold, redesigned, developed and built our first 18,000 kits.
Over the last two weeks we have shipped out 17,155 of these to 86 countries across the globe, 11,542 have been received by customers and 5,613 are in transit.
*Out of the box… *
Last week we asked to see photos and videos of you guys with your kits and in return we promised to offer a 3D printed Judoka! We have seen some incredible unboxing videos & we want to see more! So we are extending the contest 🙂
To anyone activating a kit this weekend – bring a camera! Take a shot of your startup, and for extra points, shoot a creative video.
Then send it to us at email@example.com or tweet it to us by clicking –> @teamkano For your chance to win a 3D printed object, or some exclusive stickers!
In the ether
Yahoo [says](https://www.yahoo.com/tech/the-kano-computer-a-beginners-computer-kit-channels-96917546614.html) you’re “bringing the ideals of early Apple — and the Homebrew Computer Club that spawned Apple and many of the other early computer titans — to a new generation.”
The Guardian [says](http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/oct/02/kano-computer-kids-pong-sharing) "The important thing about the first couple of hours my sons and I spent using Kano wasn’t learning to code. It was laughing together; working together to solve some problems; one son doing something nice for the other.“
And TechCrunch [says](http://techcrunch.com/2014/09/27/kano-ships/) "Kano has its work cut out — after all, it’s building the whole kit and kaboodle.”
