A DIY tablet for kidsMakePi will soon be offering a Raspberry Pi-powered tablet that children can put together as easily as a Lego kit.
[MUSIC] You're looking at the Make Pad by Make PI. This is a tablet for kids but the twist is kids build it themselves. We're looking at finished prototype but if you get one of these, you'll build it yourself. You'll get a Raspberry Pi, 10.1 inch display, a battery pack, a speaker and everything else you need To put together a functioning tablet. The display phone is a bit fragile, so there's extra protection for it. The cables are color coded to make it easy to put together. [MUSIC] From the look, you could tell it's for kids. Make Pi says it's for ages five and up. It's a bit on the chunky side, but the point is to get kids building things for themselves. Once the tablet's put together, kids can use Make OS made by MakeBy and applications are built on these little planets. Code Planet, you can see that, Art Planet. [MUSIC] They are launching a Kick Starter next month, the Make Pad will cost $269 on Kick Starter. I'm INAUDIBLE] and this i a Make Pad by Make Pod. [MUSIC]
