= open source knitting machine




"In a lot of ways hand-knitting can be seen as the original form of 3D printing: strands of material are fed through knitting needles that fashion the material into an object according to a predetermined design. So it makes perfect sense that artist and designer Gerard Rubio, with some help from Knitic creators Mar Canet and Varvara Guljajeva, made this incredible open-source, arduino-controlled, knitting machine called OpenKnit."


"OpenKnit is an open-source, low cost (under 550€), digital fabrication tool that affords the user the opportunity to create his own bespoke clothing from digital files. Starting from the raw material, the yarn, and straight to its end use, a sweater for example, in about an hour. Designing and producing clothes digitally and wearing them can now happen in the very same place, rewarding the user with the ability to make decisions regarding creativity and responsibility."
