Summary
When TED Senior Fellow Cesar Harada heard about the devastating effects of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, he quit his dream job and moved to New Orleans to develop a more efficient way to soak up the oil. In this TEDTalk, he explains how he designed a highly maneuverable, flexible boat capable of cleaning large tracts quickly. And rather than turn a profit from his invention, he has opted to open-source the design.
