I was recently perusing the Interweb when I stumbled upon a goldmine of awesome tech videos. The site is called Technology, Entertainment and Design (TED). If you haven’t heard of this site before, I highly recommend checking it out if you’re interested in awe-inspiring talks by some of the brightest people in their respective tech fields.

Here are three of my favorites. Let me know what you think in the comments!

Creating tech marvels out of a $40 Wii Remote

Building sophisticated educational tools out of cheap parts, Johnny Lee demos his cool Wii Remote hacks, which turn the $40 video game controller into a digital whiteboard, a touchscreen and a head-mounted 3-D viewer.

Blaise Aguera y Arcas leads a dazzling demo of Photosynth, software that could transform the way we look at digital images. Using still photos culled from the Web, Photosynth builds breathtaking dreamscapes and lets us navigate them.

Pattie Maes & Pranav Mistry: Unveiling the “Sixth Sense,” game-changing wearable tech

This demo – from Pattie Maes' lab at MIT, spearheaded by Pranav Mistry – was the buzz of TED. It’s a wearable device with a projector that paves the way for profound interaction with our environment. Imagine “Minority Report” and then some.
