I recently went to the Participatory Design Conference in Bloomington, Indiana, to present my Body-Technology Interfaces project and to get participants to make their own socially-aware, purposeful knitted technology “cozies.” Some of them were just fantastic, including the above pictured “I Am Talking on the Phone” by Yvonne Dittrich which draws attention to your hands-free devices as well as holds your phone around your neck in a beautiful manner. Check out the site for all the interesting creations.
