In this exciting Talk, Chris Bregler introduces us to the NYU Movement Lab before setting the audience loose on an exciting game of "Squidball". As they bounce retro-reflective balls around the auditorium to play interactive games, each audience member gets to literally demonstrate "NYU in motion"!

About the NYU Movement Lab
The NYU Movement Lab is a motion capture studio and research group dedicated to the analysis and animation of all forms of human movement. It is housed at NYU's ITP Tisch School of the Arts, and Courant Institute's VLG. Many projects are at the boundary between computer science, dance, performance art, animation, medical research, and other uses of motion capture technology. Chris Bregler is the Director of the NYU Movement Lab.

As one of the world's leading research universities, New York University hosts an amazing roster of highly intelligent, vastly inquisitive Students, Faculty, and Alumni throughout its global network. Each is a thought-leader in his or her own right, and with TEDxNYU we are bringing them together to share ideas, insights and inspiration.

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)
