A one man band made of lego.
“Every time I run it, I give it a set budget, say $50. It grabs a random word from the Wordnik API, then runs an Amazon search based on that word. It then looks for every paperback book, CD, and DVD in the results list, and buys the first thing that’s under budget. If it found a CD for $10, then the new budget is $40, and it does another random word search and starts all over, continuing until it runs out of money, or it searches a set number of times.”
Thank you Samuli for sharing this with me. It is awesome.
Based on Becky Stern’s and Lada Ada’s work back in 2010. Fabienne Serrières also customised a 1980′s microcontroller equipped knitting machine so that it could communicate with her modern day computer. The result is a knitting machine that prints pixelart. This varies from pixelated logo’s to mathematical rules like wolfram’s one dimensional cellular automata model. Everything is open source and the full documentation can be found here. Pretty knit.
