    • The programmable Accutrac 2000 turntable used in the murder plot was the first example of a brand new and important technology. As an arm scanned the width of the record, an infrared light beam was bounced off the surface and the returning light intensity was read. The turntable was thereby able to measure and store the location and width of each individual track, allowing the user to play only those tracks he wished to hear. This technology would eventually become the method by which vast amounts of digital information could be read using a reflected laser beam, leading to laser discs, CD's, CD-ROM's and ultimately, DVD's.
