Sensational technology: TEDTalks Playlist

Today’s playlist is about innovative technology that can enhance or even replace our ability to see, feel, hear, taste and smell. These speakers have each worked with one of our five senses -– and the results are truly sensational!

Josh Silver designs some funny-looking eyeglasses that can easily and cheaply match prescriptions for those in even the poorest villages.

Adam Grosser demos his low-cost and electricity-free refrigerator that can keep food cool — and preserve medicines — in remote corners of the world.

Dean Kamen’s new prosthetic arm can do everything your arm can do — and maybe more.
