Finding Nemo just got frickin' easier for laser toting shark5/2/2012
Would Dr. Evil be happy with just one shark that has a frickin' laser beam attached to its dorsal fin? Marine biologist Luke Tipple did just that when he fitted a noninvasive, laser-bearing clamp to a lemon shark at the behest of laser manufacturer Wicked Lasers. Tipple originally wanted to test out a line of clamps and saw attaching the laser to it as an opportunity to gauge both how sharks' reacted to the beams (they were attracted to it) and to track their movements, providing better understanding of how their bodies work. Tipple said the low-powered laser posed no health risk to any animals or divers. But most importantly, we have photographic proof that sharks with laser beams became a reality in our lifetime.
How cool is this photo?
