TEDxDelft - Tim Zaman - buy a balloon, put helium in it, attach a camera and let it go

Tim Zaman is a 22 years old student Mechanical Engineering. He is mastering in Biorobotics at the Technical University in Delft. He's into camera's, software, finance, programming, electronics and working. In his spare time he sends balloons up in the air. Buy a balloon, put helium in. Attach a camera, and let it go, then pick it up when it lands! Sounds easy? It is! He puts a GPS device in the balloon, that broadcasted its location through radiosignals so he knows where it is during flight. He picks it up where it lands. The device taped video and took many pictures on its journey through 32km of atmosphere.He did not achieve his goals because there were no goals. But if you do something with passion, you can still achieve a lot.On 7 November 2011 over 900 people gathered in the beautiful city of Delft for the first TEDx event in Delft, the Netherlands: TEDxDelft. We had 20 live speakers on stage talking about a wide range of subjects. A few of our speakers: Theo Jansen, Irma Boom, Huba de Graaff, Leo Kouwenhoven, Erik Meijer, Lodewijk van den Berg, Kas Oostheruis, Bauke Steenhuisen and Lowie Vermeersch. More information on http://www.TEDxDelft.nlIn 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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
