Artists Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet worked along side Sebastian Mealla from the Music Technology Group in Barcelona to create Neuro Knitting. Basically, if you wear an EEG cap and listen to classical music, these guys will knit you a custom scarf patterned after your brainwaves. No joke.
Neuro Knitting represents a novel way of personal, generative design and fabrication. An approach that brings together affective computing and digital crafts. And thus, it offers new applications and creative thinking to both areas.
The wearer is asked to sit and listen to about 10 minutes of audio from Bach’s “Goldberg Variations.” The resulting brain activity is then transferred into a knitting pattern with an open-source machine called Knitic. Not only are these scarves signature designs, they look good too. See more Neuro Knitting goodness in the video below.
