Ayah Bdeir | RISD on TED

Over wintersession, TED Fellow Ayah Bdeir visited RISD and presented as part of the Extra Medium Lecture Series organized by David Zacher (MID ’12).

While visiting, Bdeir talked about the development behind littleBits, a set of electronics as easy to play with as Legos. Following her presentation, Bdeir broke students into teams of two and three and had them develop and prototype a project using the set. She recently spoke at TED 2012 as part of the TED Fellows program, and shared some of the photos and footage from that day in her talk.

Check out her TEDtalk here.

Below is a photo of the littleBits set, as well as some screenshots from her TEDtalk.
