    One of the major benefits of working at The Digital Village was all the famous names passing through, and I was once lucky enough to be present when Kai demoed a bunch of his recent stuff to a handful of us. He has that perfect Jobs technique of piling through stuff quickly, spending a while on features that bore the techies (who think it’s dead easy) and then, out of nowhere, prompting a “Wait… do that again?”

    None of the stuff he showed us ever saw proper release, alas. I remember him telling us about this Russian company he’d bought who made handheld laser scanners that could spit out contour maps of any object instantly. This was back in ’97.
