It was on a trip to China that Ben Gulak first appreciated just how bad pollution from vehicles could be. This inspired Ben to develop the oh-so-cool UNO electric unicycle for eco-friendly urban transportation. He charmed the intimidating curmudgeons on Dragon's Den into investing in his dream. He made the front page of Popular Science as one of the Top 10 Inventions of the Year. He represented Canada at the International Science and Engineering Fair, and he won the prestigious National Collegiate of Inventors and Innovators Alliance Award. He was named a TED Fellow. Not bad for a teenager!

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
