Brick Carpet Loom

When I re-do my driveway, I want this machine and I don’t care if its not cost-effective and won’t even fit in my yard. This is a fantastic toy.

I saw this over at Gizmodo last week and I couldn’t help but to think about the similarities between brick patterning and weave patterning. They share in common the basket weave and herringbone, and in decorative terms share design elements with carpet, however, I don’t think I’ve ever heard the term “soldier course” in reference to carpet design.

It also goes back to a thought that I started yesterday that “that roads are non-woven textile ribbons of asphalt”… or in this case, brick.
