KnitWit


I'm pretty sure that this is still in the prototype phase, but designer Rebecca Spender has designed "Smart" knitting needles that keep track of the number of stitches that you've already done. She has integrated movement sensors into the end of the needles to record their movement, then the data is streamed via RF to a remote base station that decodes the movements. Apparently, when a stitch is made, the LCD counter on the base station registers it.
