Cardboard Robots Kids Can Build: A project called Kinetic Creatures will make inexpensive kits available for kids to build robots out of cardboard. The project is being launched on the crowd-funding site Kickstarter, where industrial designer Lucas Ainsworth and public-school art teacher Alyssa Hamel have already raised more money than their goal of $22,000.
They were inspired by Dutch artist Theo Jansen, who developed enormous, animal-like creatures called Strandbeests that move along the beach powered by the wind. The Kinetic Creatures kits will be available for $30 each and will come with video instructions to build an elephant, rhino or giraffe using cardboard. via TechNewsDaily
