We have seen a lot of gadgets that are solar-powered, but here is something a little more interesting. This nature-powered knitting machine relies solely on the wind, as it knits on its own, taking the boring and tedious nature of knitting out of our lives.

The automatic knitting machine almost looks like something between a coffee grinder and a medieval torture machine.

Implications - Researchers have been developing many automated machines as an attempt to see if they can replace certain duties. Technology has become a huge part of everyone's lives and so the industry is looking for ways to provide convenience by eliminating day-to-day chores. Tech products may very well soon eliminate the stress of taking care of an entire household providing more leisurely time for consumers.
