A scientist has managed to attach a laser beam to a shark, fulfilling the want of Austin Powers’ nemesis, Dr Evil.
The spectacle took place in the Bahamas and was caught on film as daredevil and Australian marine biologist Luke Tipple swam up to a lemon shark prior to clipping the laser on its fin.
Tipple had currently been assembling a comparable piece of kit geared towards attaching a camera to a shark’s dorsal fin, that he hopes will give footage from a shark’s viewpoint.
Even so, when Hong Kong-based firm Wicked Lasers heard about Tipple and his plans, they convinced him to swap a camera for a single of their modified 150mW S3 Krypton lasers.
With the experiment a good results Tipple was keen to emphasise that the shark was not harmed in anyway and hopes to continue his quest at attaching a camera.
Okay so it could not be the heavily armoured predator Dr Evil had in thoughts, but it proves it’s attainable.
If we had been Dr Evil we’d suggest he looks into hiring Luke Tipple as his number two.
What do you assume to Dr Evil’s plans lastly being fulfilled? Let us know
