Why you should make useless things | Simone Giertz

Оценок: 80399 | Просмотров: 1634276
In this joyful, heartfelt talk featuring demos of her wonderfully wacky creations, Simone Giertz shares her craft: making useless robots. Her inventions -- designed to chop vegetables, cut hair, apply lipstick and more -- rarely (if ever) succeed, and that's the point. "The true beauty of making useless things [is] this acknowledgment that you don't always know what the best answer is," Giertz says. "It turns off that voice in your head that tells you that you know exactly how the world works. Maybe a toothbrush helmet isn't the answer, but at least you're asking the question."

The world needs more people like Simone. She is genuinely curious, intelligent and seems to see the good in everything.

I've reinvented my life - took me longer than her to figure that out! I'm carving out a niche for myself inventing >VERY< useful things. See http://PrepNserve.com It has been a long haul but once you realize it is the journey and it's supposed to be fun, it all flows better. She has some hilarious videos (the vegetable cutter would work well with my product! One container could hold all the digits she cuts off). Performance anxiety? Nope! She totally overcame that!

The fact that TED is now putting content out like THIS is proof that TED is just a joke now.

The logic of striving for failure: If your goal is failure, every time you fail, you succeed in your objective and, if you fail in your objective, it's because you inadvertently succeeded. You can't lose
Echo Drive (30 дней назад)
I really appreciate anyone actually trying and building something. No matter how simple it may seem. And sharing the anthusiasm and the spirit of designing and building. Thing doesn't always work as you may have thought or expected, that's why you have to build, to truly understand.
Echo Drive (30 дней назад)
I think the word "useless" in the title is a reflection of humility, because what she builds are NOT useless. You wanna see something truly useless? The "free-energy" thingy that some people build and demonstrate on YouTube, that is useless, worse than useless actually, because of the dishonest and the deception.

I don't make robots but I make digital art and the community is so closed and expectations are so high but you made me relax and realize that I should be doing this because I enjoy it. And not worry what others think. Art is subjective anyways. And its okay to fail

i think the mayority of the possitive comments its because she is pretty. But really the only thing she is saying is: Give you permission to fail. Something nothing new in the manage of stress

Ray John Alovera (1 месяц назад)
This inspired me. It gets hard to fight that voice in your head. It gets to a point where I can't move even if the answer is right in front of me. Fear of failure takes over and the thought of starting turns into 2 months' worth of daydreaming until the drive just fades away. This video made a great impact and possibly changed my life (work(job) and play). This is possibly all of those "just friggin' do it" articles summarized into 12 minutes in video form. Thanks, Simone.
