The astounding athletic power of quadcopters | Raffaello D’Andrea



In a robot lab at TEDGlobal, Raffaello D’Andrea demos his flying quadcopters: robots that think like athletes, solving physical problems with algorithms that help them learn. In a series of nifty demos, D’Andrea show drones that play catch, balance and make decisions together — and watch out for an I-want-this-now demo of Kinect-controlled quads.

Why people believe they can’t draw – and how to prove they can | Graham Shaw | TEDxHull



Why is it that so many people think they can’t draw? Where did we learn to believe that? Graham Shaw will shatter this illusion – quite literally – in a very practical way. He’ll demonstrate how the simple act of drawing has the power to make a positive difference in the world.

Graham specialises in the art of communication and has helped thousands of people to make important presentations. He is perhaps best known for his use of fast cartoon drawings to communicate ideas and is the author of ‘The Art of Business Communication’.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

The star-studded production combines comedy, charisma, and a lot of sass to create a memorable evening perfect for everyone from couples looking to spice up their routines to groups interested in a girls’ – or guys’ – or couples night out.

Broadway World calls the show “a night of fun and laughter that makes you feel good in all the wrong places,” while Theater Mania hails it as “one of the best date-night shows you’ll ever see! Breathlessly entertaining! Uproariously funny! And hysterically titillating!”

“Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man” is the only show in Vegas that can truly call itself “the gift that keeps on giving.”
