Leah Buechley, director of the MIT Media Lab High-Low Tech research group, is demonstrating e-textiles, in the form of wallpaper. Buechley investigates the integration of high and low technology from cultural, material and practical perspectives, with the goal of engaging diverse groups of people in developing their own technologies. She is well-kmown in the field of electronomic textiles (e-textiles) and her work in this area includes developing a method of creating cloth printed circuit boards (fabric PCBs), like the one shown.
