Not film-related but I'm sure tech-loving members will be as impressed with this laser cleaning wonder as I am. It's like a magic wand.

I wonder ho much it might "age" what it cleans with every use. For instance, if you use certain plates and such in the microwave, they may look just fine, but with each use, the object is getting more "brittle" with each "wave" sent through it.

Sheesh, that looks like something from the "Jetsons". [Eek!]

The same technology used to clean the rail tracks when they get mould from leaves. I've seen it before where it shows a mans hand near the path of the cleaning laser not affected by it. A clean path for welding on metal maybe, I wonder how much though, where's my wire brush in the meantime.

Just wait until that gets into the wrong hands and is aimed at an aircraft flying overhead. There is a campaign to bad powerful laser pens (that is over a few milliwatts), what would the one in that video do?
