Machine Knitting a Cosby Sweater by CRAFT via Adafruit Industries
Andrew has hacked a knitting machine from the 80s so that it can be used as a knitting printer:
Andrew Salomone uses a hacked knitting machine from the 80s to “print” digital images into knitted garments. At World Maker Faire New York 2011, Andrew demonstrates the knitting machine and shows off its creations including a sweater with Bill Cosby’s face.
He also created a scarf based on the representation of a music sample, the Amen Break, which he can now ‘loop’ around his neck!
