Seeing Through Walls
from the who-needs-walls? dept
dsg writes in with a link to this story about a company that has built a device to “see through walls”. It’s main purpose is to help rescuers in disaster zones find people who are buried under rubble. It’s basically a small radar system that can detect minute movements. Apparently, the device came about as a result of other research being done on putting radars on cars to prevent collisions. Both applications sound pretty useful to me.
