The precision and power of the laser has made it an indispensible tool in our daily lives. Since its discovery, the laser beam has made advances in science, technology and design. I am constantly amazed at its many reinventions and unique applications. From moving, creating and destroying objects, these laser breakthroughs prove that there isn't much a laser can't do.

Implications - Laser technology is more than just a science fiction fixture, and the companies that are taking advantage of the multitude of creative purposes that it can be used for are perfectly poised to move into the next decade. Instead of avoiding an uncertain technology whose mainstream practicality is as of yet relatively unproven, forward-thinking businesses should embrace the opportunity to get on the forefront of technology such as this.
