Electronic Pop-up Book

One of my favorite pieces at this year’s Ars Electronica / MIT Media Lab exhibit is an electronic pop-up book made by Leah Buechley’s student Jie Qi of the High-Low Tech research group. She has layered the traditional materials with copper films, conductive ink and lights and speakers to add a digital dimension to the already interactive book. The entire thing is powered by a Lilypad arduino, underscoring the potential of ubiquitous electronics to transform even the most simple and universal materials.
