Tech Demo Submission Form
Attention all engineers, inventors, makers, technology professionals and enthusiasts! TED is seeking jaw-dropping tech demos or talks, to be shared at our 2016 conference in Vancouver. The ideal talk/demo will feature a new piece of technology that can be shown in just a few minutes from the stage, tell us about something new and innovative, or offer a new lens on a tech topic. It can be something that might change the way we do things in the future, or the way we think about them.

If it’s a demo you’re proposing, the tech you show us can be simple or complex, tiny or big, homemade or slick, weird or elegant. It can come from a company, a university lab or a kid in the garage. Regardless, it should be innovative and smart with the potential to make a positive impact on some little corner of the world. For either a demo or a talk, we’ll want to know why you’re uniquely qualified to share the idea at TED.
