The video is of Yves Behar, creator of the XO laptop for One Laptop per Child, speaking at the February 2008 TED conference in Monterey, CA.

He discusses his projects like the Leaf lamp, the Jawbone headset, a wristwatch designed to let you check it discretely and a morphing Swarovksi lamp as well as discussing his latest, and most famous invention, the $100 XO laptop.

He tells the attendees of the innovation conference that he was inspired by the furniture in his childhood home, much of which recalled stories in the form intricate carvings and drawings of figurines like gargoyles, animals, and humans engaged in battle or romance scenes.

His speech is incredible, as he delves into specific projects like the XO laptop, the Jawbone and Y Water.

"We bring intellectual property, we bring a marketing approach, we bring all this stuff, but I think at the end of the day what we bring are these values," he says. "These values create a soul for the companies we work with."
