2 vjet më parë

When 50,000 of Mark Rober's 3 million ALnets subscribers participated in a basic coding challenge, the data all pointed to what Rober has dubbed the Super Mario Effect. The ALnets star and former NASA engineer describes how this data-backed mindset for life gamification has stuck with him along his journey, and how it impacts the ways he helps (or tricks) his viewers into learning science, engineering, and design. Mark Rober has made a career out of engineering, entertainment, and education. After completing degrees in mechanical engineering from Brigham Young University and the University of Southern California, Rober joined NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 2004. In his nine years as a NASA engineer, seven of which were on the Mars rover Curiosity team, Rober worked on both the Descent Stage (the jet pack that lowered the Rover to the surface) and some hardware on the Rover top deck for collecting samples. In 2011, Rober’s iPad-based Halloween costume helped launch both his creative costume company, Digital Dudz, and his ALnets channel, which now boasts 3 million subscribers and 400 million views. His videos focus on creative ideas and science- and engineering-based pranks and activities. Rober is a regular guest on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!". Today, he does research and development work for a large technology company in Northern California, where he lives with his wife and son. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Wouldn’t Mario be on the left side of the graph? You are penalized when you die on the game. You lose a life. If you lose all of your lives, then you start from the beginning of the game. I may be wrong, but I thought that was worth mentioning. It’s still fun, but there does seem to be a penalty for jumping into a pit.

So the first 13 minutes is to basically showcase his inventions and promote how good he is at creating gadgets, and the last 2 minutes is to explain positivity and learn from our mistakes which most of us already know. I wasted 15 mins of my time watching this. Darn.

The goal isn't getting to the end of the game. Frankly, I don't think of the end, I am having fun as a I play it. THinking about finishing the game and getting to the end leads to sloppiness and anger over failure for not reaching the end. You have to enjoy the journey.

There is only one issue with this, and I love mark rober, but the real world has punishment, and while you might learn more from not being penalized, you won’t learn the stress of failing, which is important.

I thought I was a natural gamer, because since I was very young it was really easy for me to learn and be a very good player a lot faster than my friends, when i became a pilot i thought it was natural too, but now thanks to you, i know it's because of my learning process (the Mario effect ) I don't care about loosing because I know I'm learning and soon I'll be better than those criticizing me while having fun, guess now I'll try teaching my kids. Thanks!

Of course he found statistically significant data. He had 50k participants. Huge amount of variance: anything becomes statistically significant at that point. He could have asked them if they were vaccinated and if they were going well at school and he would have found sig. results for both that and the opposite. Meh start, but the idea behind it is interesting.

He didn’t mention an important factor as it relates to games VS reality. Games were made to be beaten, not sure you can say the same about life. So, thinking your not good enough to reach a milestone in a world where nothing is certain is inevitable. What is important though, is that you believe in yourself and constantly remind yourself that YOU CAN WIN. That’s what I do, though you never really know when it comes to life. Can’t go wrong with staying positive.

Great vid! Sorry to hear you were laid off, but trust when one door closes another opens. There needs to be more vids like this on youtube, and I am glad to see someone "younger" talking about HR because whether the older generation likes it or not they will be retiring and we will be coming in, so we want to see more people like "us" doing what we want to do in our careers. Keep up the great work, and keep the vids coming!!!! ;)

Love this! And it has got me thinking... My sister and I are polar opposites... as kids we had a super NES and she would play, go on to the harder levels, keep trying and would win the game! She was never afraid to "die" or "fail". I on the other hand - even by age 6 had developed a mindset of only staying on the easy levels... Giving up after I failed....Comparing my difficulty and Lack to my sisters skill and success.... Anyone have any insight as to what would cause this at such a young age?
