Limor Fried is a recent graduate of the MIT Media Lab where she earned
a Masters of Engineering in Computer Science and Electrical
Engineering. For her thesis, Limor developed and built subversive
electronic devices, including a pair of glasses that darken whenever
television is in view and a jamming device that disables people’s
annoying cell phone conversations at the press of a button. She
releases much of her work in the form of DIY kits or instruction sets,
including persistence of vision displays for bikes, a home brew
synthesizer, and a minty iPod charger.
