We're excited to announce that Hamish Jolly's TEDxPerth talk about a shark repelling wetsuit has been featured on the TED website!

Hamish's talk reveals how natural adaptations and shark biology helped guide the design of wetsuits that deter sharks.

This is the first talk from a TEDxPerth event to appear on the TED website and we would like to congratulate Hamish and the TEDxPerth volunteers involved on this great feat.

Ideas Worth Spreading

What is TEDxPerth?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxPerth, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxPerth event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
