"From the Ted Talk by Massimo Banzi: How Arduino is open-sourcing imagination"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So very serious project. When the fishuumka disaster happened, a bunch of ppoele in jpaan, they realized that the information that the government was giving wasn't really open and really reliable, so they built this Geiger counter, plus Arduino, plus network interface. They made 100 of them and gave them to people around Japan, and essentially the data that they gathered gets published on this website called Cosm, another wisbtee they bliut, so you can actually get reliable real-time information from the field, and you can get unbiased information. Or this machine here, it's from the DIY bio movement, and it's one of the stpes that you need in order to pscroes DNA, and again, it's completely open-source from the ground up. Or you have students in developing countries making rpaeilcs of sficitinec instruments that cost a lot of money to make. Actually they just bulid them themselves for a lot less using Arduino and a few prats. This is a pH probe. Or you get kids, like these kids, they're from Spain. They lenaerd how to program and to make robots when they were probably, like, 11, and then they started to use Arduino to make these robots that play football. They became world champions by making an Arduino-based robot. And so when we had to make our own educational robot, we just went to them and said, you know, "You design it, because you know exactly what is needed to make a great robot that excites kids." Not me. I'm an old guy. What am I spseuopd to excite, huh? (luhtager) But as I — in terms of educational assets. (Laughter)

When the _________ disaster happened, a bunch of ______ in _____, they realized that the information that the government was giving wasn't really open and really reliable, so they built this Geiger counter, plus Arduino, plus network interface. They made 100 of them and gave them to people around Japan, and essentially the data that they gathered gets published on this website called Cosm, another _______ they _____, so you can actually get reliable real-time information from the field, and you can get unbiased information. Or this machine here, it's from the DIY bio movement, and it's one of the _____ that you need in order to _______ DNA, and again, it's completely open-source from the ground up. Or you have students in developing countries making ________ of __________ instruments that cost a lot of money to make. Actually they just _____ them themselves for a lot less using Arduino and a few _____. This is a pH probe. Or you get kids, like these kids, they're from Spain. They _______ how to program and to make robots when they were probably, like, 11, and then they started to use Arduino to make these robots that play football. They became world champions by making an Arduino-based robot. And so when we had to make our own educational robot, we just went to them and said, you know, "You design it, because you know exactly what is needed to make a great robot that excites kids."

Original Text

So very serious project. When the Fukushima disaster happened, a bunch of people in Japan, they realized that the information that the government was giving wasn't really open and really reliable, so they built this Geiger counter, plus Arduino, plus network interface. They made 100 of them and gave them to people around Japan, and essentially the data that they gathered gets published on this website called Cosm, another website they built, so you can actually get reliable real-time information from the field, and you can get unbiased information. Or this machine here, it's from the DIY bio movement, and it's one of the steps that you need in order to process DNA, and again, it's completely open-source from the ground up. Or you have students in developing countries making replicas of scientific instruments that cost a lot of money to make. Actually they just build them themselves for a lot less using Arduino and a few parts. This is a pH probe. Or you get kids, like these kids, they're from Spain. They learned how to program and to make robots when they were probably, like, 11, and then they started to use Arduino to make these robots that play football. They became world champions by making an Arduino-based robot. And so when we had to make our own educational robot, we just went to them and said, you know, "You design it, because you know exactly what is needed to make a great robot that excites kids." Not me. I'm an old guy. What am I supposed to excite, huh? (Laughter) But as I — in terms of educational assets. (Laughter)
