The Solution Without a Problem…

When the LASER was first created in 1962, after years of research, it was dubbed “a solution without a problem”.  It was many years later that the LASER and the science it gave birth to, Photonics, became the technology driving cutting edge developments in medicine, communications, defense and manufacturing.

But AT&T, saw the possibilities. This video is astoundingly prophetic – with all they imagined, “millions of new communications paths will be available for unique services of the future, like the Picturephone, which may one day, when linked to a computer, do our arithmetic or give us the latest stock quotations”, and much more, a reality today, less than 50 years later.
