    What’s the practical benefit of such an invention?

    Medical imaging comes to mind. Manufacturing as well. Mapping too come to think of it. Um, lets see how about one that doesn’t start with “M”. Meterological forcasting? Nope, still M. Mechanical engineering? Shoot thats another M. I’m sure there are non M ones too, i’ll write some if i think of any ;-)
