'Small Thing Big Idea: Designs That Changed the World' is an all-new original series from TED, the media organization that is best known for sharing free talks from innovative thinkers.
The design-centric video series on Facebook Watch spotlights some of the smallest ideas that have had a large-scale impact on the way the world functions today. The episodes of the series are organized into bite-sized formats that provide only about three to four minutes of content, which is especially appealing to young viewers on social media with limited attention spans.
Some of the innovations covered in the series include what TED design curator Chee Pearlman calls "ubiquitous but overlooked" ideas, such as the jump rope, the pencil and the cleverly designed London Tube map.
