What's wrong with a watch with corners? Dick Tracy's 2-Way Wrist Radio had corners.

I have a BS in Liberal Arts and Sciences with a major in Psychology and started to to work in IT the day after I graduated. I have worked on a lot of complex transportation systems include optimization algorithm development, but I never found a need for the calculus or physics that I did take. But the writing skills that I acquired back them have really paid off when I needed to write specifications and other technical documentation.
Re: The importance of complexity
Most developers do not get to work on NP hard problems. I have been solving transportation work assignment problems using K-opt, insertion and genetic algorithms for the past 25 years, and I have had only one other person work on these algorithms with me. The huge majority of the other developers worked solely on the data manipulation end of the applications. It's a lot like compiler design, very people actually do that kind of work.
Not just fog. Rain, show and sleet were also hard on the connection. Unless an outdoors LightLink unit was fitted with a really long hood, sunrise and sunset were also problematic.
When these guys can transmit in a blizzard, I will be impressed.
Re: shouldn't feed the trolls
Way older than that. Datapoint (long gone now) had machines that booted and ran off the local area network 30 (yup, thirty) years ago.
