TO DO in L.A. Thursday night: inventor Chuck Hoberman

If you're in the Los Angeles area (Pasadena specifically) Thursday night, come catch a free talk by Chuck Hoberman. Hoberman is the man behind that clever toy sphere that expands to huge size and then collapses down to a compact core. But he's designed all sort of other weird and wonderful structures that fold, collapse, spiral inward and otherwise disappear into themselves...everything from tiny cardiac artery stents that spring into shape when released inside the heart to folding roofs for giant football stadiums.

Hoberman's talking at the prestigious Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. The talk start at 7:30 Thursday night. Admission is free. See you there!

UPDATE: Hoberman had to cancel his appearance at Art Center. They will reschedule his talk for sometime next year.
