Knit winner! The idea behind this installation at Mediamatic in Amsterdam is that installation participants play a game, and the winner gets his/her winning “panel” knit into a banner by a computerized knitting machine. I’m super happy to see the knit hacking Limor Fried and I did cited as preliminary research for getting this (way more complicated) setup working. Way to go, Fabienne, Travis, and Arjan! I can’t wait to see the full documentation of how to build your own motor drive.
