RSRE and Laser-Scan

RSRE (as it had become by the early 80's) and Laser-Scan in Cambridge worked on an alternative to individually driven LCD pixels, by drawing vector graphics using an infra-red laser to switch the phase of the LCD.

Reference to 1984 paper: Laser-Addressed Liquid Crystal Displays

I can still remember the goggles, locked doors and notice: "Do not stare into laser beam with remaining eye".
