This is cool. I particularly like what he said towards the end of the video,
All the marvels and wonders of technology can amount to nothing unless it elevates people to their highest potential. This is the aim of the future by design.

That is a good way to think about design. Who are some other people who are thinking like this man? I think Apple might be thinking in a similar way. There's also innovation in technology for education - see  http://www.futurelab.org.uk/.  There's also every diy innovation in 3rd world countries with people who make tools and shelter out of the materials around them like trash cans.

I wonder if the mindset that this man has can somehow be related to the mindset that a lot diy creative people have today, such as the communities at  http://www.makezine.com/  and  http://www.instructables.com/
