Another TED talk - Cameron Sinclair founder of Architecture for Humanity - Design like you give a Damn<

Cameron Sinclair, founder of Architecture for Humanity at TED in 06.

An impressive talk - this guy has managed to focus his passion, you can hear it in his voice.

"TEDPrize winner Cameron Sinclair is founder of Architecture for Humanity, and author of Design Like You Give A Damn: Architectural Responses to Humanitarian Crises In this presentation, he demonstrates the need for a design response to humanitarian crises, and unveils his TEDPrize wish: to create a community that actively embraces open-source design to generate innovative and sustainable living standards for all."

Multi-touch sensing screen - Jeff Han - TED '06

Ken and Patrick sent me this demo from the TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference. It's a pretty amazing demo of a Mult-touch sensing screen demoed by Jeff Han at TED'06.

The speaker sweeps his hands over a backlit drafting board and manipulates things naturally in this way. His photo table is particularly impressive.

There is also a decent demo of a mapping application using hand gestures sweeping across the screen.

This looks like the future.
