Neato, but it would be cooler to me if he included a true howto rather than just a shopping list, vague references to procedure, and end results.

Of course.. he's shilling his book (and laser combo).
What gets me, is that he received his information from someone else on how to do it - and now he's profiting.

*sigh*

Here is a site
that actually has the How-To. Neat stuff

It's a Denisyuk hologram, and there is a good article in
Scientific American about it from 1988. Search for Denisyuk
on the web, and you can make sense of the shilling.

Put powerful technology in people's hands and interesting and creative things will ensue. Good.

This is why I spend way too much time on the internet.
