robertogreco : turtlestitch   1


is based on a browser-based educational programming language (Snap!) to generate patterns for embroidery machines. It is easy to use, requiring no prior knowledge in programming, yet powerful in creating nowels patterns for embroidery. It is useful for designers to experiment with generative aesthetics and precision embroidery as well as tool for innovative workshops combining an introduction to programing with haptic output.

Turtlestitch uses Snap!s "pen module" which it interprets as a needle and transforms its output into widely-used embroidery file formats.

About Snap!

Snap! is a visual, drag-and-drop programming language that allows students to create interactive stories, animations, games, and more, while learning about mathematical and computational ideas. Snap! was inspired by Scratch, but also targets both novice and more advanced students by including and expanding Scratch's features.

Snap! is developed by the University of California, Berkeley with the support from the National Science Foundation, MioSoft, and the CommunicationDesign Group at SAP Labs.

The design of Snap! is influenced and inspired by Scratch, from Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab. For more information see and "
