Toying with Knitting Machine Construction

My father has always lamented the demise of Meccano construction sets, saying they were a better toy than the Lego sets that have nearly supplanted them because they actually took some effort and a kid could really learn something about construction from them. Here, perhaps proving him right, is a video showing a Meccano knitting machine in action. You can compare it to the Lego knitting machine I posted about in May 2013.

  1. Meccano is still available! I bought some for my twins for Christmas, but here in the US it is called Erector.
