    Technology today

    If Oskar Barnack were alive today and able to design the next mobile phone with camera, how do you think it would look?

    It would have a prominent Hello Kitty logo.

    I have no doubt of this.

    It would look similar to other mobile phones around, but smaller, and there would be a tiny door on the bottom into which you would need to insert a device that would enable the phone for 36 calls. To get the device into place properly you would need fingers the size of of a 5 year-old's.

    OTH, 100 years from now you'll still be able to get parts and service for it, and there will be a market for using components from it on the latest and greatest imports from Alpha Centauri.

    Oskar

    Oskar was simply trying to have a handy way of testing movie film using a short roll of the stuff. He was not parting the Dead Sea or responding to a Burning Bush.

    I don't know, but such a meeting would be interesting.

    Heretic! Blasphemer! That you're right is irrelevant.
