The guy that did these, Johnny Lee, just did a TED talk. It's nothing new if you've watched the videos, but it was cool for a few reasons.
1) it's amazing how fast the scientific community seized on the work he's been doing.
2)it was cool to see him get such an ovation for what I agree was some really great innovating. Especially given how obviously nervous he was giving that talk, it must've felt great to get such a reception.
