Episode #16 - Matan Berkowitz In this episode we speak with Ma Tan. Interdisciplinary artist, award winning inventor, entrepreneur, Forbes U30, TED speaker. Matan is very self aware and is fueled by a passion to make a real sustainable difference in the world. Itโ€™s reflected in everything that he does. From founding a company called Shift, where he worked on creating impact-driven innovations, focusing on developing solutions for people with disabilities. To sharing his unique visions by giving talks and performing in front of large audiences, trying to leave people with a sense of ownership over their lives in stages that include TED, Google, Microsoft and Forbes. To his current project where heโ€™s working to enable tongue driven operating solutions. Matan is determined to actively effect people positively and to do things that are larger than himself (or any one being for that matter). Matan describes the mindset that lead to what he calls falling down the rabbit hole of doing his current project โ€œI know everything is possible deep inside. We can make pretty much anything happen given enough x and y. I believe reality is this bendable, tweak-able matrix-like lucid dream. And I think once you take it out of the comfort zone of โ€˜can I be a musician/astronaut/something that I want to be. Can I tweak reality to get what I want? What does reality NEED that I can perceive or believe that I can help with?โ€™. Itโ€™s not about thinking about the things that are impossible, you think โ€˜oh this is something that can potentially be done, that can help people, maybe Iโ€™ll checkout how to do itโ€™โ€. We talk about finding the sweet spot between your passion - what you would do without being paid, without being asked, and what you can SEE and FEEL that the world around you needs. Itโ€™s evident that his superpower is turning ideas into reality quickly and effectively. Checkout the full interview to learn more about his perceptions and how you can also positively bend reality to align with your biggest dreams and aspirations. 1-click listen in your native podcast app: ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿฝhttps://plinkhq.com/i/1414219439 Soundcloud: bit.ly/2XHkKn3 #Entrepreneurship #Inspiration #TedTalk #Business #Startup

PORTALS - Interactive Trees
These interactive trees respond to human touch with sound and light while communicating with each other.

When the first tree is fully charged, the second tree lights up. When both trees are activated at the same time, they become synced - connecting people in different places through a bio-digital network.

Installation by Nir Badt, Ma Tan and Hampus Lindblad, supported by Kulturbryggan.

Ma Tan is with Ma Tan in San Josรฉ, Costa Rica.

Got to hang out with these brilliant kids from the tougher neighborhoods of San Jose (Costa Rica), who have been studying programming, robotics and English with a local NGO called FundaVida.

They had really good questions ("What do you do when you're afraid?") and loved the little show I gave them of playing music using hand movements - so I had to let them try it out for themselves!
It was a truly great moment witnessing how quickly and intuitively an 11 year old kid starts playing a beat using the Airstrument, without any instructions, and even more inspiring to see the effect that forward-thinking education can have on the lives of children and our society at large.
