Build Your Own Camera with Kano’s DIY Camera Kit

Kano, a DIY computing company in London, announced the Kickstarter Campaign for their DIY Camera Kit. The kit consists of several pieces that snap together like Lego, allowing users to build a 5-megapixel functional and versatile little camera. It’s being pitched as being great for all ages–to that end users can code photos, create their own filters, and even make critter cams and kaleidoscopes. No background knowledge needed.

It’s sort of like those DIY types of digital cameras you’ve wanted; sort of.


Kano’s mission is to get anyone to be creative with technology, and not just consume it behind sealed screens. The Camera Kit is a step in this bold direction. See it action in the video below:

The Camera Kit will be available in May 2017.  Check out their Kickstarter Campaign and pledge your support here.
