Knitting in the news

Presentations at the 2019 APS March Meeting in Boston, MA led to media interest in our knitting work and the following articles:

Ever wondered what it would be like to walk around in curved space? Well now you can! Andrea Hawksley, Vi Hart, Sabetta Matsumoto and Henry Segerman have just launched H³ and H²×E as VR simulators of three-dimensional hyperbolic space and two-dimensional hyperbolic space cross the euclidean line.
