OpenKnit: The Clothing Printer We’ve Been Waiting For

Our good friend Gerard Rubio just made the coolest printer we’ve ever seen (so far). Simply put, OpenKnit is “a new digital fabrication tool, an open-source printer that creates ready-to-wear clothing”. Unlike other printers, it’s low cost (under $760) and it gives the unique ability for the user to create his own clothing using digital files. You can even make a sweater in around an hour’s time! Now you don’t need to separate the design, the production, and the actual wearing of clothes. All of it can now happen under one roof.  Check out these awesome photos!
