Innovation on TED: Caleb Chung plays with Pleo

I watched this video tonight with my six year old daughter.  She’s taken an interest in art.  It’s fun to expose her to all it’s forms and what role art has in most everything.  Caleb says, “Innovation happens when art meets science.”

For the children of our dreams
For dreaming well

Even more than that, it requires you to top what’s out there, or you’ll be ignored.”
