The Zebedee LIDAR laser scanner reminds us of that scene in "Prometheus" where David laser-scans the inside of those creepy caverns. Well, Australian scientists are doing that in the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Iran wants to launch a poor Persian cat into space, while Volvo is training hamsters to drive trucks with the automaker's new power-steering technology. This is the world we live in.
