L is for LEGO® and Lasers

I simply couldn’t choose between lasers and LEGO® * to represent L in my A-Z Inventions Project.  LEGO® is simply intrisically cool, and as a child I spent many, many hours with it – none of it wasted.  Lasers are not only a visually appealing man-toy, they are an every day validation of quantum physics (the theoretic foundation was established by one A. Einstein in the 1917 paper Zur Quantentheorie der Strahlung).

 

On the picture: I think I need a more powerful laser.  To get the shot I’ve had to, I feel, overprocess the image.  I think I shall have to revisit this at some point in the future.
