Leah Buechley, the pioneer of the Lilypad Arduino, gives a 45 minute talk at the UC Berkeley “Design Futures” lecture series regarding her investigations in High-Low tech. Buechley has started a new division at MIT Media Lab aptly named the High-Low Tech Group. Her interests involve enabling people to build and create with their own technology. To achieve this, Buechley developed the Lilypad Arduino as a creative platform to empower individuals to begin experimenting with soft technologies. Via Makezine Why is this important? What I find profound about Buechley’s work is that she continues to question the materiality of how electronics are assembled. Her tangible explorations breathe new potentials and possibilities of how we will interface and interact with smart devices and environments in the near future.
