Autonomously knit some clothes!
In the past few weeks, we've made several e-textile posts, namely one about an E-Textile meet-up and another about our new e-textile category. While this project might not quite be "e-textiles," it certainly is in the same realm (well, kinda).
What we have here is a fully-automated knitting machine. It uses a Picaxe microcontroller, old sewing parts, and some clever programming to autonomously create knit goods. So if e-textile means clothing outfitted with electronics, what do we call clothes made by electronics? Whatever it is, we like it. If the forecast calls for snow and you need a scarf, put in a spool of yarn and sit back - soon, you'll have a nice toasty neck-warmer!
