    Well I gave a loud WTF when I read this
    Lasers for TV? It sounds pretty good to me especially since they can build large screens with it opposed to OLED

    The first sentence smells like science-fiction to me.
    What's the use of this anyway.

    Doesn't sound that dangerous to me.

    They use lasers in optical readers, though I'd think the principles are a little different. For one thing the laser in an optical reader is part of a closed system.

    Wasn't there a 3D TV that used lasers at CES?

    Indeed

    When trains were first build they didnt have windows that could open because they were scared the air would get sucked out... Steamtrains went like 25km/u or something lol
    They also thought the world was flat
