For the first time a rainbow of light has been trapped using a lens and a plate of glass using a technique that could open the doors to a whole new era of telecommunications and optical computing.

"Oh, to catch a rainbow. Well, it's been done for the first time ever – and with just a simple lens and a plate of glass at that. The technique could be used to store information using light, a boon for optical computing and telecommunications."

This is a huge discovery for the computing area as well. To be able to store memory by trapping light would make a big difference.

It will once they figure out a faster conversion from electrical to optical. :tu:

What? Are they going to turn it into some super glorious gay-beam with Meredith Baxter pulling the trigger? :D

Or a counterweapon. Depending on the material, you could certainly use it to trap deathray beams. A shield ahead of its time.

Great find. How long before they completely overpower the good it can do with capitalistic greed?

Soon! Sooooooooooon! They're one step closer to get that pot of gold!
