Compubody Socks or Knitted Body-Technology Interfaces

Body-Laptop Interface

I just added this to the Projects page:
I’ve been working on a project where I knit sweaters to go from gadgets to your body. They’re supposed to be a fun commentary on how attached and concentrated on technology we are, and to highlight the lack of movement that happens when we’re engrossed in our laptops, keyboards, PDAs, etc. I plan on making many more, and would be curious what ideas fellow crafters and technologists might have for different iterations. the one pictured above is for privacy, warmth, and concentration in public spaces while using a laptop.

The Laptop Compubody Sock is a one-of-a-kind sculpture hand-knit by Becky Stern. It is not a commercial product for sale.

  1. This thing is a Thneed. A Thneed’s a Fine-Something-That-All-People-Need! It’s a shirt. It’s a sock. It’s a glove. It’s a hat. But it has OTHER uses. Yes, far beyond that. You can use it for carpets. For pillows! For sheets! Or curtains! Or covers for bicycle seats!
