Re: For all you scientific types. Check this out.

ooooh. I didn't even think of that. That would be pretty cool, wouldn't it?

Think of how many people would be walking into doors at hotels.

Fish tank guys spend some pretty big bucks on PPG "Starphire" low lead glass because it's more clear. I've seen the tanks, and it's real sweet.

Since better lenses probably wouldn't help my crappy photog skills much, I'd settle for a nice pair of binocs made with this stuff.

Actually, I think I posted (or maybe somebody else did) a while back about some research lab that made a new material that is a clear as glass and strong as steel. Very expensive to make and I'm sure far away from being able to do so in large quantities.

Re: For all you scientific types. Check this out.

From the artical:
"In a breakthrough that could benefit fields as diverse as networking, photography, astronomy, and peeping"

I didn't know "peeping" was a field that needed benefitting.
