Neuro Knitting’s Scarves Will Cover Your Neck in Brain Waves

by Hazel Chua

Customized scarves are nothing new, but artists Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet still came up with something truly novel and different in this category.

They worked with Sebastian Mealla from the Music Technology Group in Barcelona to create something called Neuro Knitting.

EEG Scarf

The process is described as follows:

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. It’s basically a process where you, the person who wants a new one-of-a-kind scarf, wears an EEG cap and listens to 10 minutes of classical music. Your brain activity is recorded and transferred into a knitting pattern using a program called Knitic.

A custom scarf is then knitted from this pattern, and voila! You’ve got a truly unique brainwave-patterned scarf that’s yours, in every sense of the word.

But note that if you have something against Bach’s Goldberg Variations, you’ll probably have one chaotic-looking scarf.
