Why you should make useless things | Simone Giertz

  • تاریخ انتشار پیش 3 ماه

    TEDTED

    مدت زمان: 11:58

    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."

all the time when I have my own anxiety or my girlfriend has anxiety I try to remind her and myself to really look at what kind of rules we are hearing to what kind of social pressure is and what kind of imaginary rules that were following sometimes that are no longer even applicable. sometimes when I do this I realize if I want to wear a pickle on my head or if I want to wear pajamas to a party even though it's not a pajama party I can do whatever I want. It's that same mentality that when we're in adult if we want to come home and it's our house and we just want to take her pants off that's our business. as long as we are breaking the law or hurting anyone there's all kinds of rules that we don't have to adhere to and there's a certain empowerment in that. I love this video this is exactly what I try to tell my girlfriend all the time. My girlfriend worries all the time about "doing things right" and she gets anxiety and her handshake and shes scared. One day I decided to shave all of the beard I had grown off because it was really just a lazy person beard it wasn't like something I wanted to keep. I tried to convince her that since I was going to shave it all off she could not possibly do it wrong if I handed her the trimmer and if she wanted to carve a shape in it or anything she wanted it wouldn't matter because I was going to shave it all off anyway. I have this new trimmer that can't possibly cut me and she could just go ham. she was still a little too scared to do it but there's a certain empowerment in that that you can't really do it wrong especially if you just doing your own thing. And then something magical happens like this Google I shirt where the rest of the world is a little bit in awe of it because it's a personal expression that no one else has seen. I love this video it's great I'm going to share it with my girlfriend right now.

so about 25 minutes ago I was watching the video she did with Physics Girl where she says "Alexa set a timer for 45 minutes" which my echo interpreted as 25. When my echo sets off an alarm the philips hue bulbs in my apartment alternate flash. I'd completely forgotten about this and just as this video finished all the lights in my apartment began flashing. Suffice to say i was a little befuddled
