Electronics for "sketching"
Electronics aren't just for experts and engineers. Kids and amateurs should be able to play, too, which is why Leah Buechley designs little paper-based electronics for "sketching" and interactive electronic fashion for tinkering. Buechley designs and creates electronic textiles, or e-textiles, like this jacket that can signal which way you're turning on your bike.
Leah Buechley is an MIT electronics designer who mixes high and low tech to create smart and playful results.
