Kano, a company that makes kid-friendly coding products, is releasing a programmable Harry Potter wand in the fall.
Children (and I’m sure many adults) will be able to build code-able wands with their own spells. They will be able to customize puzzle bits of code. They customizations range from changing the color of the spell, length, or even what the spell does. You can even share your spell afterwards. Unfortunately, you can’t have your spells interact with real-life objects. Instead, you interact with an app on a tablet.
Why it’s hot:
People love Harry Potter, especially kids. They can get lost in the magical world while learning the foundational elements of coding.
