Ha, that's neat! Reminds me of when Bionicle made it into the Sarah Connor TV show, only this is way cooler... because TED.

TED talks are going to take over the internet, assuming they haven't already.
Ariely brings up an interesting point: we need to have sense of purpose in order to accomplish tasks. It when that sense of purpose is forced away from us that we become restless and indolent. I think that's more optimistic than the idea that our only driving force is money. It does bring up a unique question: why don't we accept money as something as purpose fulfilling, or in a deeper level at least? I'd go on, but that's pushing the limits on BZP rules.
It's a good talk.
EDIT: But I did find the odd combination of a wrongly designed Vakama Hordika and Bohrok Va to be humourous.

That was good talk. I'm actually surprised Bionicle is still mentioned every now and then.

That's not a Bohrok Va, that's a Gahlok.
Sorry. Lol @ description of "Bionicles" in talk. Very interesting and informative. For all not aware, TED talks mostly deal in economics. (At least, from my experience.)
And yes, he did use Lego fans near the end of the experiment. There's something to the good old "I do this because I like it, based on past experience " versus the "I am going to do this to stay alive." mentality, but that is heightened if you know that the creation is not pointless, is going somewhere, etc.

Interesting talk...I kinda wish I were paid to build Bionicle figures.
