At first glance, these scarves appear to be decorated with beautiful, random patterns—but they’re actually made with unique mathematical algorithms. KnitYak founder Fabienne Serriere combined her love of math and knitting and is now seeking funding to buy an industrial knitting machine to create these gorgeous scarves.

When I started out modifying knitting machines it was because I wanted patterning that was beautifully non-repeating. I wanted something that looked great no matter how I draped it or wore it. To find algorithms that produce great knit patterns, I set out on a journey to find code that created images that look great “pixelly” as a knit. Knitting is made up of tiny “v”‘s, not square pixels, so that also played into the choice of algorithms. One of the algorithms I ended up loving was an elementary cellular automaton that generates great knit patterns which are non-repeating in some lengths, and yet not noise. …All of the scarves are provably unique; no one has the same scarf as you and I can prove it. KnitYak scarves ship with the specific code and generating key used to make the pattern on your scarf. There is something powerful about knowing the mathematics and code behind the pattern you are wearing.

A little cosplay and cuteness in backpacks today.

First up is a Kingdom Hearts Sora Cosplay backpack which is a black canvas bag with faux leather details. I love the pockets. Then there’s the Adventure Time BMO backpack. BMO has a lenticular face design so he’ll have some major mood swings as you bop along.

BMO happy! BMO angry! BMO happy! BMO angry!

If there were biker gangs in Star Trek, then the Klingons would be the scariest of the lot. This denim jacket makes you an honorary member of the Sons of Stovokor.

This jacket features the emblem of the Klingon Empire embroidered on the chest with a back patch which reads “Onward to Sto-vo-kor” in transliterated Klingon characters (well, technically “Sthovoqor” – it’s like a Klingon with a slight speech impediment said it – maybe as the result of a jaw broken in battle?) on the top and “It is a good day to die” in tlhIngan Hol beneath a Klingon skull and crossed bat’leths. This design is a ThinkGeek exclusive. The black denim is 100% cotton. Machine wash cold, inside out. Dry flat. Do not put in dryer. Imported.

Today is definitely a good day…to ride.

Another day, another bag I covet. I swear, I have a problem when it comes to my love for all things purse and bag like. This time around, it’s this Disney The Little Mermaid Tattoo Print slouch backpack which combines Disney and tattoos. Pretty much an instant win as far as I’m concerned.

shelfpack

Leaving clothes in your luggage during hotel stays leaves them a wrinkly mess. On the other hand, I’m too lazy to put my clothes in the drawers. ShelfPack is the solution I desperately need.

The ShelfPack features stacked shelves and telescoping supports that are simple to load up with clothes and then pack away.

It’s a little too big for carry-on, and it is a little expensive at $350, but being able to conveniently organize your clothes and skip using a hotel room dresser does sound rather appealing.

htri_dragonscale_handbag_holding

ThinkGeek’s legendary Handbag Of Holding now comes in a dragonscale version. And you can feel good about your purchase because it was ethically sourced. It used to be that wave after wave of knights were slaughtered to take down dragons for stylish and functional bags like this. However, we’ve been assured that these dragons were free-range and died of natural causes.

Like previous handbags in the series, the dragonscale version is plenty big with 15 pockets to hold all of your stuff. Check out more pictures after the break…
