Video Update: Telectroscope on Broooklyn Waterfront

Below is a video of people interacting with the amazing Telectroscope, at Brooklyn's Fulton Ferry Landing. This engineering marvel allows people to "see right through the Earth" from London to New York and vice versa.

Brooklynites and Londoners have been waving, gesturing and writing messages to each other since the Telectroscope was installed early Friday. One man wrote his cell phone number on the white board, and someone from the other side chatted as they gazed at each other. People are arranging to meet their brothers and sisters, girlfriends and boyfriends.

The lack of sound is forcing people to be creative, and this adds to the enjoyment.

Paul St. George is the creator of this scientific wonder.
