The medium is the message

I saw the most amazing TED talk the other day, about Nikola Tesla. Now, we all know that Tesla was a fascinating, awesome dude (especially as played by David Bowie IMHO), but in the case of this video it was the presentation method that blew me away.

I can’t get the video to embed for the life of me, so here’s a link. It’s only 6 minutes long and I promise it’s worth it.

Isn’t that amazing?! I’ve never seen anything like that in my life. Being an incurable geek, my first thought was how to use this technology for scientific presentations – imagine being able to flip open a screen the shape of a cell, or a molecule, and run those animations…

I am officially in geek heaven.

    🙂 very impressive indeed. I wish to see it in real life… it’d probably be even better.

    Cath, is enjoyable your post. Unfortunately Tesla was not understood at the time.
