I'm glad you brought this up.  I was browsing through a Nuts & Volts  
magazine this weekend at Barnes & Noble and saw an ad for this same  
device.  It certainly warrants some investigating.

"If there is truth to the proposition that knowing the past helps us  
to understand the present, I believe there is at least as much truth  
to the proposition that what we know of the present is crucial to our  
understanding of the past.  What we have not ourselves experienced or  
observed we can at most only partially and imperfectly comprehend;  
and I suspect that there is much in history that is so remote from  
our own experiences or observations as to be largely beyond our  
understanding." - Kenneth M. Stamp
