The Kid Should See This

The Cyclo Knitter, a bicycling machine that knits scarves in 5 minutes

Imagine it’s the midst of winter. You are cold and bored waiting for your train at the station. This pedal powered machine gets you warm by moving, you are making something while you wait and in the end you are left with a free scarf! That you can decide to keep yourself or give to someone who needs it more.

It’s all about spreading joy and making those boring moments more fun.

Watch commuters on an Eindhoven train station platform make their own scarves in five minutes with a human-powered cycling/knitting machine: The Cyclo Knitter by design student George Barratt-Jones. The collaborative art piece/machine was built with wood and bicycle parts.

Next, watch Bus Station Sonata: Commuters play Beethoven.

Plus: A time lapse of Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing 797, Janet Echelman’s fiber sculptures, and how woolly sweaters are made.
