In previous posts I've discussed Freespace Programming. Optical nodes (among others) in free space create lasting interactions, which could be used to create various effects. Research with spiral lasers has created new particles, with spiral nodes permanently capturing particles in freespace. This research is the proof that I've been waiting for.
With location-based programming and more systematic construction, interesting systems could be constructed. Perhaps even systems with the objective of altering the path of light, radiation, or other objects moving through space. Prismatic or refractive effects could be yielded by placing these new particle nodes along the frequency paths of incoming light, thus allowing the light to be bent around an object. While this application is yet to be proven, it seems sound in theory.
