Hans Rosling's Shortest Talk Ever


Hans Rosling, who is already known to use physical props during his presentations, ranging from IKEA storage boxes, over washing machines to a real sword, demonstrates again how physical objects can be used to focus human attention to important statistical trends. He also shows how stones can convincingly form bar graphs.

The above 'talk', taking less than 50 seconds, 'happened' during a spontaneous interview after the TEDxSummit 2012 in Doha, Qatar and discusses the impact of global population growth.
