OpenKnit is a new, low cost, digital fabrication tool that allows the user to automatically create bespoke ready-to-wear clothing from digital files. It's an open-source project which means that anybody have free access to all the required documentation to build his/her own machine.
We brought an OpenKnit machine to expose this technology to the people and try to create beanies for them. Our time was limited and we only could create one beanie but the experience was fantastic, people got quite hypnotized with the process and we had great feedback.
More street actions after summer! :)
