What is the ZeGoBeast?
The ZeGoBeast is a mechanical walking creature brought to life by you.
It comes completely unassembled – it’s up to you to turn the raw material you receive into the life-like model you see here.
Inspired by Theo Jansen’s work, the ZeGoBeast is a compact kinetic sculpture driven by the energy you put into it.
After you build it on your own, you’ll explore hand tools, basic kinematics, and mechanics. And if you build it with friends and family, you'll bond around the challenge and success of creating an intricate machine from over 300 separate pieces.
We’ve been working hard to bring this to you – now, we’re finally ready to release ZeGoBeast to the world.
We need your support to make this happen. Be a part of ZeGoBeast and help us get the word out there!

Risks and challenges
Everything you've seen in the videos and photographs we've made ourselves - we're confident in our ability to deliver rewards to all of our potential Kickstarter supporters. We've had years of experience operating and designing for laser cutters, we've lined up local and domestic vendors to provide redundant sources of material, and we've nearly finalized the design. That said, we are fully aware that unforeseen risks may present themselves (natural disasters, tragic deaths, etc.). We will keep our backers informed and updated.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
