Submission + - Hacked CD drive becomes lab scanner

holy_calamity writes: Hacking two extra light sensors into a CD drive can turn it into a lab scanner to read the results of high-accuracy immunoassays used to detect disease markers or pathogens, New Scientist reports. The drive proved able to detect pesticides at concentrations as low as 0.02 micrograms per litre.

I was speaking strictly in the sense that Dick's work always has a tendency to cause us to question our perception of reality...his ability to twist things and make us look at it form another perspective... it in suggesting that maybe we're not the highest form of evolved beings...or maybe that our perception of what is good and right is wrong and evil to someone else.

It doesn't have to stick 100% to the story to be Dickesque.
