Google honors the invention of the Laser

If you go to the Google website today, you’ll see that their logo has been altered to look as it has been created by various colored laser-beams, this to honor the first succesful demonstration of a laser, 48 years ago today.

I checked both the TRUMPF and DILAS websites, but neither one of them mentioned it – perhaps they’re waiting for the 50th anniversary in 2010 🙂
