BRUSSELS, BELGIUM – A company called Knitic wants to knit your brain. To do this this they put an EEG headset on the customer. Then they throw on Bach’s Goldberg Variations.

For about 10 minutes the user will listen the soothing music while the EEG analyzes and records the brain’s response to the music including relaxation, excitement and cognitive load. The brain waves are then converted into something tangible, a knitting pattern.

The pattern then goes to a digital knitting machine where it’s transformed into a scarf. Told you it was weird.
