This Official ‘Harry Potter Wand Teaches Kids a *Magical* New Skill
Kano

A new invention from a British startup might be as close to a real Ollivander wand as we muggles are going to get.

Kano, an educational tech company, has partnered with Warner Bros. on a wireless Harry Potter wand that can teach kids (or—hello?—HP-loving adults) how to code. The wand uses an app (and an internal computer) that lets users cast spells by pointing the wand at a computer screen and waving it around. While learning valuable programming skills, kids will make their way through beloved locations like Hogwarts and Diagon Alley, solving various coding-based games.

The kit costs $99 and is available for preorder now (with an official release date of October 1). 

Because, what are coders if not the real wizards of the muggle world?
