Memory -- Unlocked | Chester Lian | TEDxYouth@BeaconStreet
- Published on Dec 23, 2014
- This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Walking on your hands is difficult, but only because you're not using the right body part, your feet. Similarly, memorizing anything can be difficult when you use the wrong part of your brain. Chester has set a world record by accurately memorizing the configurations of 17 different Rubik's Cubes before blindfolding himself and solving them all. He believes anyone can greatly improve their ability to memorize and recall information by learning how to unlock the experiences stored in our brains that we take for granted and never actively use.
Chester Lian is an expert at memorizing and solving Rubik's Cubes and he does it blindfolded! He has set two world records, and has been the champion in six blindfolded events at the U.S. National Rubik's Cube Championships from 2010 to 2012.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event 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.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
