Neurological Knitting

Posted on

 

Ever a sucker for knitting and geekery, I was intrigued by an article I found on DVICE:

The Music Technology Group in Barcelona has devised a process to measure a person’s brain waves, and create a custom scarf with the pattern.  The team asks a person to wear an EEG cap, and listen to about 10 minutes of JS Bach’s Goldberg variations.  While this is going on, a computer is measuring the resulting brain activity, and then transferring it into a knitting pattern with an open-source machine called Knitic.

Not only is this super-cool, I’ve now answered the question of what to buy the person who has everything.

    This is a fantastic way to use your knitting machine. I haven’t used mine in about 10 years. Maybe it is time I started experimenting with it! Great way to create something new. Thanks to Confessions of a Yarn-A-Holic for posting it.
