Announcing The Telectroscope!!!

I was feeling whistfully steampunk after my last post so you can imagine my absolute delight when I came across this story on the BBC.
The picture above is one end of a 'tunnel' from Brooklyn Bridge in New York to Tower Bridge in London and it's called a 'Telectroscope'!
As Londoners on the banks of the Thames looked down the tunnel they could see a group of New Yorkers looking back at them and waving. Messages were passed using white-boards and Manchester United were told that they 'suck'!
The inventor of the Telectroscope tells us that it works by utilising a tunnel in the Earths crust and mirrors.....but is more likely to be fibre optics and a good imagination.
But do I care!!??
Look at it!!!!
Isn't it beautiful!
