"You're probably thinking, 'Wow that looks super easy!'...but it's not."

TED fellow and MIT lecturer, Skylar Tibbits explains the technology behind self-assembling, programmable parts that construct themselves into large-scale objects that are activated with the addition of a little energy.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
