I visited TEDx Brussels 2 weeks ago and like always I was surprised with the nice presentations.
Of course not all presentations I can “connect” with but it’s good to see what each sector is working on.
But if I had to give one remark it was that the afternoon was completely about Health. So the afternoon was not that spectacular.
Now 2 presentations that Rocked My World were: Made in Space & Glowing Plants.
Made in Space is all about 3D printing in space which can fix a lot of problems for our fellow astronauts:
– It can reduce space because they don’t have to store spare parts anymore.
– If they don’t have the spare part on board, it can be quickly created instead of waiting for the next flight
The options are limitless!
I’m really into the whole 3D printing stuff and these guys are already thinking to go into space.
Well done! Extremely well done! This is what I call out of the globe thinking. Pun intended!
Have a look at http://www.madeinspace.us/
Glowing Plant Project was really the more controversial presentation but nevertheless awesome.
Now I hope i’m telling this right. 🙂
These guys can change the DNA of a plant so it can give light! This is told in very simply way
They studied nature, just look at the video below that will be easier:
Not everybody applauded after this presentation but I did it for sure!
Thanks again TEDx for bringing me in contact with the future!
