TED Talks Top 20 Most-Watched Videos TED Talks Top 20 Most-Watched Videos I’m a huge fan of TED talks but then again who isn’t really? So finding out that TED had released a list of their top 20 most watched TED Talks will pretty much wipe out the remainder of my day.

Putting it together: the modular car With the 10^5 Competition, MIT's Vehicle Design Summit (VDS) will leverage distributed innovation to build a better car. In August 2012, ASKlabs produced a microdocumentary about the MIT Vehicle Design Summit, an MIT Edgerton Center-supported team, featuring co-founders Anna Jaffe (Environmental Science MIT '06) and Nii Armar (Aeronautics and Astronautics, MIT '08); Robyn Allen (Aerospace Engineering, MIT '07), a third co-founder, was not filmed. Founded in 2006, with the goals of reducing waste in auto manufacturing and reducing global carbon emissions from vehicles, this dynamic MIT student group has grown to become an international design and engineering collective. To date they have built four prototype alternative-fuel vehicles at over 200mpge efficiency, and a vehicle intended for the Indian market that was built in Italy.

And when the game Call of Duty: Black Ops was released in 2010, gamers around the world played it for more than 600 million hours in just the first 45 days. That is the equivalent of 68 years. While some people worry about the popularity of video games, in today’s talk, brain scientist Daphne Bavelier suggests that gaming may be far more beneficial than we think (in moderation) — even if the game is all about shooting up the enemy. “Most of you have thought, ‘Come on, can’t you do something more productive than shooting zombies?’

25 Documentaries Everybody Should Watch Sans Soleil This is not your average documentary. It is a fleeting memory, a sudden remembrance of times long past, a meditation on time and culture, a touch of an emotional diary.
