Artist duo Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet collaborated with MTG researcher Sebastian Mealla to produce custom scarves featuring brainwave activity recorded with a non-invasive EEG headset. Brain activity such as relaxation, excitement, and cognitive load were measured while listening to Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” and the data was converted into knitting patterns with Knitic, their open-source knitting machine.

Neuro Knitting represents a novel way of personal, generative design and fabrication. An approach that brings together affective computing and digital crafts. And thus, it offers new applications and creative thinking to both areas.

    neat! its kinda cool having innovations like these with arduino.. makes my learning about it craving for more.. it does open pave ways to new developments.. as it is, the technology on EEG + the knitting pattern and the knitting equipment gives way on neuro projects..

    how about if i listen to had rock music? might have several spikes on the reading.. anyways great job on this one!
