Kinetic Creatures are a culmination of four years of design, research and play. Our initial goal was to make a complex mechanical linkage accessible to everyone through an easy assembly and a friendly form. We were inspired by a linkage popularized by the great Dutch sculptor, Theo Jansen. These types of mechanisms capture the imagination, but are hard to build yourself. The Kinetic Creatures take the difficult measurements, alignment and mechanics, and lay them into an easy-to-assemble, pre-cut and scored pattern.
Kinetic Creatures started with a design, a dream, and the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign.
