Kinetic Creatures on Kickstarter

May 18, 2012

Elly the Elephant

Kinetic Creatures are the brain child of visual arts teacher Alyssa Hamel and industrial designer Lucas Ainsworth. For four years, the two Portlandians researched and designed these DIY, sustainable animals.  Their  goal  is to use them in class to inspire students to become thinkers, inventors and builders.

They are currently raising money on Kickstarter to help produce Rory the Rhino, Geno the Giraffe or Elly the Elephant.  Check out their video.   These fantastical creatures can move with your help or on their own and are not only fun but educational.  If you have some extra cash to contribute to this project and want to encourage kids to aspire to something besides becoming a singer on american idol, please do.
