I have seen a lot of great sessions but this one was my absolute favorite. Dean Kamen is a brilliant inventor and motivator. I learned about him when Segway came out and followed his TED Talks showing an upright wheelchair and prosthesis for veterans.
I embedded two videos in this Storify that I highly recommend so you can understand more about this Da Vinci of our time.
As for his presentation, he was really soft-spoken about a very powerful message of hope and dedication to helping people around the world. This was the heart of SXSW for me and the absolute best part of the conference. I end my SXSW coverage on this blog with this presentation because of how touching it was.
Educators: he directed so much of his message to the FIRST Robotics program and how we need to package education better to reach our students.
Enjoy and share with others.
