Sharks with freaking Laser Beams

July 11, 2011

Check out this video from 1969 about laser beams posted to twitter today by AT&T tech labs. It introduces tattoo removal, holograms and talks about what will become using lasers for CD players and more.

Towards the end of this video, there’s a segment about how lasers will allow for video phone calls and using home phones to dial for stock quotes.

 

It’s worth watching if not for the 1960s futuristic sound track.

Random Google Maps

February 19, 2009

I love Google street view. Sometimes it catches people doing things they might not want to be caught doing. Other times they are doing things we have no idea what they are doing. Here’s a random image the street view team picked up.
