Tired of boring old knitting patterns? NeuroKnitting uses an EEG headset to record how your brain reacts to music. While listening to Bach’s “Goldberg Variations,” the headset measures  relaxation, excitement, and cognitive load. The impulses are turned into data that feeds to a hacked knitting machine, and voila! A scarf replete with your brainwaves. 

In other news, Snapchat launches SnapKidz, and Kartell plans China expansion. See the headlines after the jump.
