Knitted Keyboard II

The research team at MIT has been working on a prototype to use knitting to create a keyboard that is playable and responsive. 

The use of knitting has allowed the use of conductive fibres as well as theremin-inspired technology in this instrument, which doubles as a wearable scarf. It is programmable and looks good into the bargain! Performances will never be the same...

You can learn more about the project here and hear the instrument in the video below.
