London to New York
This giant telescope doesn't actually cross the deep soil, but it does allow citizens from New York and London to see what is happening in each other's city. And in live video. Not through a tunnel, but thanks to a transatlantic Internet connection with high definition cameras on both ends. While on the banks of the river Thames it's cocktail hour, New Yorkers are just finishing their lunch. Londoners have to pay 1 pound to look at the big Apple, New Yorkers can look at Londoners for free. The idea was created by British artist Paul St. George, early 2008.
