Knitting doesn’t get more precise than this. Andrew Salomone manipulated an electronic knitting machine to allow it to use photographs as reference. Not only can you save patterns in the machine for future use, but it automatically adjusts the needles and yarn as you knit. Check out that awesome Bill Cosby sweater he created.
Andrew Salomone uses a hacked knitting machine from the 80s to “print” digital images into knitted garments. At World Maker Faire New York 2011, Andrew demonstrates the knitting machine and shows off its creations including a sweater with Bill Cosby’s face.
