In a lot of ways hand-knitting can be seen as the original form of 3D printing: strands of material are fed through knitting needles that fashion the material into an object according to a predetermined design.

So it makes perfect sense that artist and designer Gerard Rubio, with some help from Knitic creators Mar Canet and Varvara Guljajeva, made this incredible open-source, arduino-controlled, knitting machine called OpenKnit. OpenKnit is an open-source, low cost (under 550€), digital fabrication tool that affords the user the opportunity to create his own bespoke clothing from digital files. Starting from the raw material, the yarn, and straight to its end use, a sweater for example, in about an hour.

La dernière fois qu’on avait rencontré monsieur Munakata, c’était à la Maker Faire Tokyo en 2014, où il faisait la démonstration de son chat volant aux yeux brillants, lui aussi ornithoptère par excellence, avec en plus une télécommande Arduino.

A hanging leather shelving project has been on my to-do list for a while; to be honest, the biggest delay was just finding the right belts.
