Neuro Knitting allows people to create a distinctive one-of-a-kind scarf designs.

There are many means of creating a design pattern for a scarf, one of which is using a person's brain waves. To create these one-of-a-kind scarf designs, artists Varvara Guljajeva, Mar Canet and Sebastian Mealla created a program called Neuro Knitting. With the use of Neuro Knitting and an EEG headset, they were able to take a person's brainwave and turn it into knitting patterns. Each stitch pattern is the physical representation of a person's brainwave while listening to classical music.

It would've been interesting to see what type of scarf designs the machine would've produced if the wearers of the headset were listening to hard core metal music.
