untitledsockprojet Knit a Sock with Your Breath

Mediamatic‘s knitting machine hacks are getting out of control this November in Amsterdam. Untitled Sock Project is a circular knitting machine controlled by blowing into a straw. By Luís Brandaõ, Fábio Costa, Sean Follmer, and Pol Pla:

The result will be a collaboratively knitted sock lamp with a unique color pattern.
