Wind Knitting Factory

Date 06 Jun 2018, 00:00 - 00:00

The ‘Wind Knitting Factory’, is a wind-powered knitting machine, and is displayed during the International Festival of Technology. The blades embrace more than a meter in diameter, and the wind caught by them powers the ‘mill’. In this way it is possible to knit a long scarf. When it is windy the machine knits fast and with less wind, the machine knits slowly. Occasionally the knitwear gets ‘harvested’ and transformed into, among other things, scarves. Every scarf gets a label that tells the time and date on which the wind knitted the scarf. This mobile wind factory illustrates a production process and it visualizes what you can produce with the present urban wind. Come and see it for yourself!
