A Dutch designer created a human-powered machine that knits a scarf in five minutes. The designer writes:
Imagine it's the midst of winter. You are cold and bored waiting for your train at the station. This pedal-powered machine gets you warm by moving, you are making something while you wait and in the end you are left with a free scarf! That you can decide to keep yourself or give to someone who needs it more.
