Canon 250MP sensor makes sci-fi surveillance an “enhanced” reality

Today Canon revealed a 250MP image sensor that'd make Along Game a Spider, Stargate, and Blade Runner feel vindicated at last.

Star Wars fans produced an animated video exploring an alternate reality in which Palpatine's "Order 66" had failed. Even without the video, it's interesting to think: If Star Wars was reality, what would it have taken for Palpatine to fail at the tail end of Revenge of the Sith? Could a few small factors change the tide, or was Palpatine so well situated that his endgame was inevitable?
