For aspiring coders out there, you can now learn to code and be delighted by the Wizarding World along the way, thanks to this new Coding Kit from Kano.
This new product from computer company Kano, available for pre-order, celebrates creativity and demonstrates the capabilities of code and technology.
The main tool, the coding wand, which comes with a step-by-step coding manual and accompanying Kano app, teaches the basics of computer programming. And once built, the coding wand’s built-in motion sensors can be used on over 70 gaming challenges across six different Wizarding World backgrounds, including Hogwarts castle, Hagrid’s hut, Honeydukes shop, and the Forbidden Forest. Moving the coding wand in a given order will activate code, and sometimes these movements might even be familiar as spell movements from the Wizarding World!
More seasoned coders can have fun with the coding wand kit too, with the technology allowing you to create your own art or music.
Users can build a profile and avatar for which they can collect rewards such as icons and badges inspired by the Wizarding World, as they advance their coding skills and understanding.
We wonder what Mr Ollivander would make of all of this new-fangled Muggle technology?
The Harry Potter Coding Kit by KANO will be released 1 October, and you can pre-order right here.
