Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories is making good use of their new computerized embroidery machine, first up is this Arecibo Message scarf:
The Arecibo Message, one of the most famous messages transmitted as part of SETI, loosely translated, says: “Hi! We’re intelligent! We’re made of meat! Here’s where we live!”
Binary designs like the Arecibo message are popular with knitters and cross-stitchers since they can be pixelated easily. We implemented the embroidered pixels as columns of satin stitching in a single color. The embroidery design is about 3.5″ x 11.5″. We’re providing a couple of different embroidery formats for those with access to machines as well as a .pdf for cross stitch, hand embroidery, laser engraving, or whatever else you can think to do with it.
