Yarn Monster Eats Yarn for Dinner, Could Be Sitting at Your Table Soon

 |  |  |  |  |  |  May 2, 2011


I love Kickstarter. It’s a great place for new and innovative ideas to get off the ground when they might have never made it in conventional start-ups. I’m not quite sure this is one of those great ideas, but it sure made me chuckle – and for that, it deserves a post.

Yep, what you’re looking at here is the latest in DIY geek tech – the Yarn Monster. Created by Todd Treece of Union Bridge Labs, it’s designed to do one thing, and one thing well. He gobbles up loose yarn, spinning it into a perfect ball. Yarn Monster has brains powered by a couple of Arduino pro mini controllers, and even comes with a Mini-me remote control. But it’s not the functionality and technology that makes Yarn Monster special. It’s the way he looks when devouring yarn – and the brilliant promotional video clip. Watch the video and see what I mean:

I don’t know about you, but that giant plate of yarn spaghetti reminds me of that scene with the dogs eating pasta in Lady and the Tramp. I wonder if you got two Yarn Monsters if they’d kiss? Well if you want to find out, you need to head over to Kickstarter and contribute to the cause. A pledge of $115 (USD) or more will get you a Yarn Monster kit, and $165 or more will get you a fully-assembled one. If nothing else, cough up $30 bucks for a commemorative Yarn Monster t-shirt and show your support.
