An X-Ray Camera – Secret Eye that makes you see everything!!

The advent of technology enables you to look all the way through walls and even make you click over the images of such things that you even can’t see. All you need for this is an X-ray vision incorporated into your camera and it makes you snap and see images even around the corner.

A team of experts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has created a prototype that has the capability of collecting even tiny bits of light that rebounds off different objects located in different corners. Subsequently, a laser light is being used to elucidate the scene that cannot be seen with a naked eye.

Such kind of camera can be utilized in rescue and search operations; one of the professors, Ramesh Raskar, working on this project stated that this is simply about having x-ray vision without having the x-rays.

Hope to have this technology available shortly, lets keep our fingers crossed!!
