Dynamite with a laser beam

And guaranteed to blow your mind – the latest edition of E&T magazine, that is. It’s a laser special to celebrate fifty years of the scorching beam; ten unexpected uses for lasers (yes, Dr Evil does get a mention); how lasers are making the tricorder dream possible; and, funkiest of all, a photo essay and image slideshow of what happened when E&T asked Swiss laser hardware manufacturing firm Bystronic to laser cut a cover for this issue out of a solid sheet of steel. It’s pretty cool.
