KANO

Kano is a computer anyone can make. Kano's mission is to give young people – and the young at heart – a simple, fun way to make and play with technology, and take control of the world around them.

When you build your own Kano computer, you get a real computer, powered by Raspberry Pi 3 and Kano OS. You get all the apps and programs you need. You get a powerful learn-to-code tool, designed to unlock potential, and unleash creativity.

Resetting Kano OS to Factory Settings

If you want to pass on the fun and give your Computer Kit to someone else, it's easy to remove your data and restore it to factory settings.

  • Find the Terminal app on your Kano dashboard.
  • From the command line, type sudo kano-init reset and press enter.
  • If it asks for a password, type kano and press enter.

That's it! Your Computer kit will be reset to factory settings the next time you start up the computer!
