In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized (subject to certain rules and regulations).

Team ria-jyu-coat

The team consisting of three undergraduate students of University of Tsukuba - Hikaru Sugiura, Maito Ohmori and Kota Shinbayashi, developed the remarkable device of virtual reality which gives us "a hug" by a virtual girlfriend. ("ria-jyu," the slang in Japanese, means that a person who is satisfied with his or her real (offline) life. It especially indicated that a person who is passionately in love with a boy/girlfriend)
