About your Pixel Kit
At the top of your screen, you'll see a bunch of helpful things.
Next to your name at the top of the screen you should see a WiFi and a battery icon - this lets you know that your Pixel Kit has connected successfully and will also tell you if you're connected to the internet and whether you need to give your kit a charge.
Now you can start coding and exploring your Pixel Kit with the challenges! Press the 'continue' button to start.
Follow the instructions, match the blocks together to create something great!
By completing challenges, you can earn more and more XP's which will allow you to level up! Once you've completed your first challenge, you can save it to your creations and move onto the next challenge.
When you click on 'All Creations' you can view all the cool creations that other people have made. You can also view your own in 'My Creations'. In the top right corner, click on your Judoka and view how much XP points you have! Compare with your friends to see who has the most
You can even send your animations to your own Pixel Kit! Just make sure your kit is connected properly and you should see a 'send to kit' button underneath your animation.
Once you've added your amazing animations to your kit, you will see it appear on the top right corner of your Kano App. You can also display it on the 1, 2 or 3 setting on your Pixel Kit, just turn the red mode dial!
