Thrilled to have a physical neural net artifact, a dishcloth called diamond diamonds sent to me by SylviaTX from the SkyKnit project.

Up close I can see all the organic asymmetries that the SkyKnit test-knitters say are both interesting & mind bending.

The SkyKnit forum is full of comments like these from knitters.

For more on the project, read @alexismadrigal's article:  https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2018/03/the-making-of-skyknit-an-ai-yarn/554894/ 

And the brain-bending weirdness works in the other direction, too.
(Tentacles and pigs were really things that SkyKnit did)
