First It Was The iRock iDevice Charging Rocking Chair And Now We Have ÉCAL Low-Tech Factory’s Rocking-Knit.

ECAL Low-Tech Factory/Rocking-KnitWhen did rocking chairs become the so rockin? Last week, we wrote about the $1300 iRock rocking-chair that put grandma to work charging your iDevice and now we have the Rocking-Knit from ECAL Low-Tech Factory that will rock out a knit hat for you.

This is becoming rocking-chair version of the “Who’d you rather?” bit – rocking chair to generate electricity vs rocking chair to knit you a hat so you can turn down the thermostat. Both ideas definitely have a home in a retirement center and both have a home on our “hope it’s true but I’m not buying” page. [Inhabitat]
