DIY computer kit

The equivalent of a Heathkit computer, the Artigo computer kit from Via Technologies gets built by Jack Kapica in the Globe.
The point of the ARTiGO, however, is not to build a computer to save money; it's to have fun getting your fingers dirty or discovering how much you can do with this little box and your imagination. It's also nice to show off the tiny thing off to friends as a demonstration of your increasing cleverness (the enclosure measures about 11 by 15 by 4.5 cm, smaller than a particularly torrid romance novel).
I'm surprised there are not more companies offering kits like this.
