Congratulations indeed! Here's a video of a talk she gave at MIT Tech Day '06,

Congratulations to both Esther and John!

I truly admire Esther Duflo. As a woman in my mid-20's, it's inspiring to see such a remarkable person not only accomplish the things she has in a relatively short career, but also to see her being acknowledged for those contributions.

Flexible electronic devices have been around for at least a decade; no genius there. The video clip alluded to his work with the brain, which is the more exciting part.
