Kano, a computer company that specializes in DIY electronic kits, has developed a new kit that utilizes a motion sensor. The Motion Sensor Kit works with Kano’s other DIY computer coding kits. With the Motion Sensor Kit, users learn the basics of coding and how to set up a game in the program. The motion sensor connects to a computer, enabling it to interact with the code the user creates.

The program uses a block-based coding system, meaning users do not have to have a deep understanding of code. For example, to start a game, the user drags a block down that says, “Start playing flappyBird,” and when the application starts, they can enable the game to interpret “Motion value” from the motion sensor. This makes the bird in the FlappyBird game stay in the air as long as the user’s hand, or another object, stays above the motion sensor.

The kit, which retails for $30, comes with a storybook detailing how the block-based coding system works and step-by-step challenges to teach the basics of coding.
