When 50,000 of Mark Rober's 3 million IRpost subscribers participated in a basic coding challenge, the data all pointed to what Rober has dubbed the Super Mario Effect. The IRpost 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 IRpost 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

The game Super Meat Boy has a good way of looking at your failure - You keep trying until you succeed, and then you get the see the journey (aka, all your deaths) happen at the same time, which is super cool because you get to see your progression to success.

School system is designed for conditioning human brain. Not to make it free. If you go to school, you will get a lot of data, but not knowledge. Knowledge and data are different. Knowledge is situated in your genetics. If the any data you get from school is corresponding to knowledge in your genetics, then it may grow as knowledge. If the data is not, then its just some data which you will eventually forget, usually after exams. School/University system is one of the most overrated system of this era. It has earned too much exaggeration.

the graph at 1:56 is misleading, the column to the right looks like its about 1 and a half the size of the column on the right, which makes it look like people with no penalty had a 50% larger success rate, even though it was far less. To the left of the graph you can see that the bottom is actually about 35% and the top is 70%. This is what makes it misleading, it should being 0-100 for an accurate representation.

Sounds like you have it rough. And sure, you can't change the settings, the world wont become easier or nicer. But you can work on changing your attitude, take the 'game' less serious, don't scold yourself for failing at tasks, focus on where you succeeded. You might need help on that, if a form of depression is keeping you down, and if so, seek out professional assistance. And reach out to the people that make you feel better, emotional support can work like a booster for us, so try getting as much as you can. I hope you'll soon find something that works for you! Stay safe, you are valuable and lovable, and eventually you will overcome your obstacles! Believe in yourself, you are worth it!

The philosophy is appealing, I have my own share of frustrations and unrealistic expectations. But on the other hand: why use 3 years to invent a moving dartboard as a gimmick? I see a point in perseverance, but only up to a point. Not all challenges are made equal, we should also learn to prioritize. Sometimes the shortcut is the way to go, quitting shouldn't necessarily be frowned upon. Wasting too much time should. And if something isn't fun, it might just not be for you. The problem with this kind of philosophy is that you risk expecting that you can just enjoy anything if you put your mind to it. But we ARE different, some people love to play Mario, I didn't enjoy the repetitive feel.

Rober is stating that the point-losing approach to learning is what causes people to give up, but I feel like it is the exact opposite for me. When I see a grade that's below satisfactory, it gets me motivated to try harder for the next assignment to come. There are many things in life that you will have to accomplish in a limited number of attempts, so the encouragement of limitless learning seems a little to idealistic. I do encourage everyone to try their best and to never give up, but the lack of consequence may cause people to completely ignore the negative repercussions that may arise as a result.

That's actually one of the main reasons I became a teacher--to let people know fun and learning can be combined. Many of my elementary teachers I had growing up thought that to be smart was to sit down, shut up, fold your hands and listen to a monologue about the difference between a an adverb and an adjective and fill out your workbook about it in silence for 30 minutes until recess.

I didn't agree with his statement either. They completed in half has many tries, but a lower success rate. I think the point is, people will stop trying if there is a negative consequence, but this is contradicted by the video game analogy because there are negative consequences with dying in Mario. If you die, you start from the beginning of the round. If you die too many times, you start at the beginning of the game.

I needed this so much. As a born perfectionist, I’d procrastinate so badly and feel like a complete failure when I’m confronted with almost any task that doesn’t provide immediate reward/feedback. Reframing the challenges and developing that into a mindset would have helped immensely. Big thanks to Mark, I’m gonna be a life-long supporter of you.

Based on this, if I used this to say weed out some engineers I wanted to hire, I would rather hire the group that actually finished the puzzle in 5 tries that were losing points after each try AKA "the left side of the graph". Most people in that group gave up because of the negative connotation of taking the points away from frustration or lack of curiosity. Those that really buckled down and focused under pressure and were not just throwing things against the wall to see if they stick got it done in less tries (5). I would rather hire or pursue that smaller group of people who did this in 5 tries that succeeded under pressure/negative consequence than hire or pursue out of the group that took 12 tries because they didnt take it as seriously when finding out they didnt have any negative consequences. Especially if you run a lean environment where you want efficiency.

I think the problem with most school types is that you don't really study to applicate your knowledge to something. In Mario, if you've learned there's a ravine, you're able to jump over it and get the result/reward that you can go on and have more fun. In school, you get a good grade, that's it. You don't have a palpatable difference because a) it takes super long to get the next "level" and you don't notice as much if you've actually achieved something, because many times the only thing to achieve is a number and you don't actually notice the knowledge stored in your brain in the progress.
