Laser technology has been steadily growing over the past few decades. Ever since the movie Real Genius came out in the early 80′s, people have been nuts for lasers. But what are their practical uses? Sure the laser pointer is fun and practical, but its limited use can get a little old after a while.
There are apparently some who believe that lasers can be put to use in the field of construction. Yes, it seems very far-fetched and outlandish, but it might be possible. Just imagine, a laser grader making the smoothest grades the world has ever seen–grading so perfect that no human hand could be responsible. A full laser excavator might be next–the thought alone is enough to send wave after wave of chills up the spine of any foreman. The future of construction is right around the corner, and we are all going to be the witnesses of this great revolution.
The future can be a scary thing, but we must not fear the unknown. This space-aged time of construction and excavation that we live in is an exciting time to be alive. We should take note of all these different changes taking place, so that one day we might be able to relate these amazing transformational events to our children’s children–What an exciting time to be alive.
