Most of the new Ig Nobel Prize winners will give free public talks TODAY, at MIT (the Massachusetts Institute of Technology). It starts at 1:00 pm (US eastern time).
Admission is free. But seating is limited, so you might want to arrive a bit early.
The lectures will be webcast here at Improbable.com (see below)

MIT—building 10, room 250
It’s a half-afternoon of improbably funny, informative, informal, brief public lectures and demonstrations:
- The new Ig Nobel Prize winners will attempt to explain what they did, and why they did it.
- Some past winners will return, to share their adventures. This year there will be a demonstration by Kazutaka Kurihawa and Koji Tsukada (acoustics prize, 2012) of a new, improved (and larger!) version of the Speech Jammer, the machine that disrupts talking.
- Winners will be available for audience members to chat with, both before and after the lectures.
