This series is for the doers masquerading as lazybones and couch potatoes — you know who you are! Well, we thought you could use a little power-up. Throughout the week, we’ll be doing the work for you, curating an action-items list for after every session at TED 2014. 

If you enjoyed the technological illusion of Marco Tempest’s talk, check out the video on his Vimeo channel.
