        That may be true for watching an entire built, but I still
remember the first time I saw an SLA in action. It was in Pete Sferro's
lab at Ford in 1991. I felt like I had stepped onto the set of a science
fiction movie. An eerie blue glowing spot darted across the surface of
the goo, tracing the outline of a half-existent object that could be
barely seen underneath. It was surreal. And it still looks the same

Best regards,
