Living a year of open source: is it possible?

Living a year of  open source: is it possible? | Knitting Machine | Scoop.it
Through his documentary “Year of Open Source” project, the Berlin-based New Zealand filmmaker Sam Muirhead has set himself the challenge of trying to live as open source as possible for a year: abandoning goods protected with traditional copyright, getting rid of his Apple, discovering Creative Commons films and music, producing clothing with circular knitting machines and parametric designs, creating digitally manufactured furniture and learning to master open hardware and 3D printing. Muirhead wanted to investigate in audiovisual format whether open technologies are as accessible as they seem, as well as to evaluate and explain many of the concepts and practical realities of the open movement.

An absolutely fascinating collaboration: Neuro Knitting. Artists Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet worked with Sebstian Mealla, a scientist from ‘the Music Technology Group’ in Barcelona, on the project. They use a knitting machine to make a scarf with colorwork patterns based on brainwave readings from EEG scans.

The Wonderful, Wooly World of Hacked Knitting Machines | Year of Open Source

The Wonderful, Wooly World of Hacked Knitting Machines | Year of Open Source | Knitting Machine | Scoop.it
“ Once upon a time, there was a warm, fuzzy hack. It was 2010 – Becky Stern and Lada Ada (Limor Fried) built on Steve Conklin’s disk emulator and knitting machine resources to allow their modern computers to work with the ancient microcontroller of a 1980s knitting machine. This meant that they could now knit designs made with modern tools, too complex or tedious to easily knit by hand. They shared their work with the world and since then, following an open hardware model, they and many others have contributed hardware and software improvements, smoothed the workflow, and allowed other models of knitting machine to be hacked.”
