DISCUSSION

I would like to submit my polite disagreement on the usefulness of lasers. To quote Nassim Taleb in The Black Swan (the book):

"When I ask people to name three recently implemented technologies that most impact our world today, they usually propose the computer, the Internet, and the laser."

Honestly, even if you were just referring to laser pointers, I'd still have to take the opposite view. Ask anyone who wants to shoot something or give a presentation what tool should be used to best guarantee that they are accurately pointing at something. I hazard and risk banning to suggest that they will invariably return, "the laser pointer".

Welcome to Gizmodo, btw.
