PostSubject: The TED Thread   Tue Mar 17, 2009 9:46 pm

I figured that for a forum about BattleBots and robotics, a thread about TED was necessary. For anybody who doesn't know what TED is, TED stands for Technology, Entertainment, Design. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from those three worlds. Since then its scope has become ever broader. And it's now this ridiculously awesome conference, and I felt it was necessary to share a really awesome TED video, if you want to check out more, the website is:
http://www.ted.com/index.php/

I can't actually upload the video, so I'll post a link instead. This is one of my favorites, it's called the Sixth Sense, its absolutely amazing, check it out if you have the time:

Bump for a good video.

http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/garrett_lisi_on_his_theory_of_everything.html

Garrett Lisi's still pending Theory of Everything.

Using a beautiful geometry lie group E-8, Lisi found a connection between this shape and a massive equation to explain all our know sub atomic particles that we know.

I love Quantum Physics. cheers
