Casey Anthony trial: Is it a logical defense to invalidate something simply because it was previously "unheard of"?


Developments from the Casey Anthony trial today:

"Duct tape found on Caylee Anthony's skull was placed there after the toddler's body had decomposed, not before she died, a forensic pathologist testified Saturday as the murder trial of the girl's mother ended its fourth week on a contentious note."


"Rodriguez also said he planned to testify that a video prepared by a prosecution expert superimposing Caylee's living face with a picture of her skull and the outline of a piece of duct tape was an 'unheard of' application of technology meant only to provide initial identifications of remains."


The defense argues that the superimposition is an "unheard of" application of technology. Really?


Using that logic, and thinking back to when tape recordings switched from Beta to VHS technology:  Does that mean that a crime caught on camera couldn't be used as evidence because only Beta technology had previously caught crimes on tape?

Does the defense want us to believe that one can
never use technology for the first time?
