Schicker oller Lehrfilm aus AT&Ts Archiv: Laser Unlimited.

Nine years after the invention of the laser, the technology had not only captured the imagination of the science fiction community (as shown in the first sequence in this film), it had also been put to use in a number of practical applications.

In this film we see early laser tattoo removal, barcodes on railroad cars read by laser, lasers cutting apart microcircuit boards, laser levels helping with aircraft production, and many more applications. Holograms and holographic technologies are given special focus - laser memory storage was still a few years away, and in 1969 they thought holograms were going to be much more important in the future than they are today.
