A crowdfunding project that aims to make the Raspberry Pi available to children as young as six has reached its $100,000 (£62,000) goal on Kickstarter in just 18 hours.

While the idea of the credit-card-sized single-board computer has captured many people’s imagination, in reality it is still relatively difficult to get a Raspberry Pi up and running if the user has never built a PC before.

Kano aims to change that by providing a toolkit that is “as simple and fun as lego” to put together. The kit includes a wireless keyboard, a speaker, a customisable case, an HDMI cable, a mini-USB
 cable, a USB power supply, a WiFi dongle and Kano’s customised operating system, as well at the Raspberry Pi itself, an illustrated guide to making a computer and an array of stencils and stickers.
