New Kano Computer Kit (Based on Raspberry Pi) Now Available $150 USD

I had seen mention of this computer kit a while ago on Kickstarter, but it looks like they are now on sale at Amazon, Toys R Us and Barnes and Noble for $150 USD.

These kits are designed to be highly kid friendly and give them an introduction into the world of computers, technology and coding your own projects. Sure, you can buy a Raspberry Pi and all these components on your own, but the convenience of purchasing this kit, along with the designed activities might make it a little easier for you (and your kids) to get started immediately.

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

Onion Pi makes your web traffic anonymous via Open Electronics

Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
