This amazing telescope was built by a Victorian inventor to build a friendship between two large cities: London and New York.

The project was resurfaced and now everyone can wave to their friends in New York effortlessly. According to the Daily Mail, "the Telectroscope uses 6ft screens and a Jules Verne style telescope that gleams with brass and an array of Victorian dials.

Participants peer into one end of the screen - and hey presto - they can see anyone standing at the other side."

Here is how the powerful telescope looks like.The trans-Atlantic tunnel is really a trans-Atlantic broadband network rounded off on each end with HD cameras, according to Tiscali, an Italian Internet provider handling the technical side of the project.
