Transformation starts with the spark
of something new.
Smart clothing designer
By designing "smart" clothing with durable technologies, we can better keep track of health and well-being, says clothing designer Janani Bhaskar. She shares how we can use screen-printing technology to attach biometric “smart stickers” to any piece of clothing -- and how they can track blood pressure, heart rate and other vital signs. "Why not transform clothing and make it a part of our digitized world?" she asks.
Physical organic chemist
During the winter of 2018-2019, one million tons of salt were applied to icy roads in the state of Pennsylvania alone. The salt from industrial uses like this often ends up in freshwater rivers, making their water undrinkable and contributing to a growing global crisis. Tina Arrowood shares a three-step plan to keep salt out of rivers - and create a circular salt economy that turns industrial byproducts into valuable resources.
Camilla Arndal Andersen
With fascinating research and hilarious anecdotes, neuroscientist Camilla Arndal Andersen takes us into the lab where she studies people's sense of taste via brain scans. She reveals surprising insights about the way our brains subconsciously experience food -- and shows how this data could help us eat healthier without sacrificing taste.
Instead of asking them what they think, Camilla Arndal Andersen covers her subjects in sensors to reveal their unfiltered and subconscious response to food.
By combining science, circular thinking and disruptive innovation, Tina Arrowood helps envision a world in which fresh river water is not scarce, but well-managed.
