NeuroKnitting represents a novel way of personal, generative design and fabrication. An approach that brings together affective computing and digital crafts as is capable of adapting knitting patterns according to three high-level EEG features: relaxation, excitement and cognitive load.
This project is a collaboration between artist-duo Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet and MTG researcher Sebastian Mealla. Sebastian is a PhD candidate whose research focuses on the possible uses of brain and body signals for multimodal interaction. Mealla has brought his expertise on physiological computing to this project. Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet are the developers a open hardware knitting machine Knitic allowing creative use of digital knitting technology.
