Procrastinating? We’ve got just the thing! The YTT have pulled together a series of TED Talks that they LOVE. Grab some popcorn and get comfy, because you’re about to get seriously inspired by these amazing engineering projects.
What is this TED talk about?
This Ted talk is about how engineers, scientists and artists came to together to create a 3 story metal sphere called the AlloSphere. Arts, science and engineering all being molded into one great way to understand our universe. It allows us to see and hear things we were never able to comprehend before.
What’s rad about it?
This TED talk allows to see, hear and truly study the human brain, artificial nature, multi-centre hydrogen bond, hydrogen atom and many more to come. This gives us the availability to widen our knowledge of many objects we could have never studied before. It takes you inside this object and truly allows you to understand it and build upon by recreating it in a larger size in the AlloSphere.
How did it inspire you?
It inspired me by allowing me to see how people in engineering are working together with many others to widen our knowledge of everything and anything. It opens up my mind to the fact that anything is possible and as we grow so does our ability to truly understand this universe and everything within it.
What surprised you?
What surprised me was that we are so far into understanding ourselves and everything around us. Such ground breaking research is being done around us every day and we know nothing of it. Our society needs to become more involved in furthering ourselves as well as honouring those who are advancing our knowledge every day.
Did you ever have an idea about developing something yourself that solves a problem in the world? Tell us all about it
I have never come up with a specific idea or product to aid in solving problems around the world but I do believe in the protection of our environment. Although I have never created anything myself I do try in my daily efforts to help protect our environment and solve our everyday issues.
