Canoe creates killer small sets to teach kids how to encode and beyond (like the amazing Harry Potter Coding Kit), and today the company announces a Disney partnership. The first product will be a Star Wars kit.
While other information is scarce in time, Kano Star Wars kit says will be out "in the second half of 2019." Alex Klein, Kano's CEO and co-founder, just teases other details and says that " Collaborating with Disney is a blessing. We can combine connected, creative technology with some of the most memorable stories ever told."
So what should the Star Wars package be? Who knows – but we would be willing to invest in having fun building, encoding and playing with it … no matter how old (or young!) You are.
Today, Kano, a leader in interactive storytelling, announced a two-year collaboration agreement with Disney's parks, experiences and consumer products. The first part of the agreement will be a Star Wars theme product system that will be launched in the second half of 2019.
Canoe is a pioneer in innovative experiences, including the STEM category creating Kano Computer Kit and Kano World, "Kids GitHub", with over 1.8 million members and 800,000 creations written by beginners as young as four and older as 81. The company closed in 2018 with a high-end product line, receiving many awards, reviews and awards . The list includes TIME Best Inventions 2018, 2019 Toy of the Year Award finalist and aCES Innovation Award Winner .
"Our goal at Kano is to take on a journey, unlock powers in yourself and others, through the means of technology – from wands that really work, to computers you Do yourself and more, "says Alex Klein, founder and CEO of Kano." Cooperation with Disney is a blessing. We can combine associated creative technologies with some of the most memorable stories ever told.
Both companies will work together to develop new products that put intelligent entertainment elements at the forefront and offer immersive experiences that bridge the physical and digital worlds in a way that can only provide Kano.
