I thought this was a neat project, and they just finished up a kickstarter for the latest iteration. It’s on open source electric spinning wheel, for spinning fiber into yarn.

I’ve seen similar wheels at fiber festivals, and while they’re beautifully made they’re a little out of the price range for many hobbiests (over $1000) so it’s really need to see something like this for those of us who don’t mind tinkering with the machine a bit.
