Textualy.org: Pa++ern: Embroidery by Twitter


Pa++ern is a project by Japanese duo Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi that uses a special “esoteric embroidery language” to create custom embroidered t-shirts using Twitter as the control interface.

The program uses sets of one character commands that instruct a sewing machine to excecute specific designs. Users can input these command codes via the Twitter micro-blogging service (@_pt), and view their results on the Pa++ern website.”
