Rocking-Knit chair knits hats while you rock

 

If the idea of knitting your own hat has always appealed in theory, but you don’t know your double pointed needles from your garter stitch, then you may wish to take a look at the Rocking-Knit chair.

The Rocking-Knit is the brainchild of students Damien Ludi and Colin Peillex, based at Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne (ECAL), Switzerland. It allows a person to sit back, relax, and enjoy the gentle rocking motion of the chair, while a woolen hat is automatically knitted and eventually appears overhead, ready to wear…

The Rocking-Knit was exhibited at ECAL’s Low-Tech Factory exposition, as part of the Designers’ Saturday event held at Langenthal, Switzerland.

It should be in a museum. And not in my study.
