NeuroKnitting is a new project which takes brainwaves produced while listening to music and makes them into a scarf.

The project is a collaboration between designers Varvara GuljajevaMar Canet, and Sebastian Maella

The team had participants listen to Johann Sebastian Bach's “Goldberg Variations" while wearing an EEG headset, which takes about ten minutes. The three primary features measured were relaxation, excitement, and cognitive load, which were captured via sensory image technology.

Although there are more than 30 variations to the Bach piece, seven were chosen based on their similarities in the bass line and chord progression.

The brainwave pattern was then incorporated into knitwear.
