Israeli Tech Lets You See Through Walls

(Hat Tip: Stand For Israel)

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be Superman? While eyes shooting lasers and flying may be a bit out of reach (unless you have a flying car with the latter), you may be able to see through walls thanks to a new invention by Camero.

( "The idea of seeing through walls has been around since the 1960s, but modern technology is now ripe enough to enable it to happen," explains Camero's technology director, Amir Beeri. "When we established the company in 2004, we intended to develop sufficiently high vision resolution to allow an untrained user to see through a wall."

Camero's unique radar utilizes Ultra Wide Band (UWB), a technology that has only come of age in recent years, and with the use of special algorithms can process data picked up by the detector to give a reasonable image of anything behind that wall. Lacking imaging algorithms, the system made by its competitor, Time Domain is able to reveal only whether there is someone on the other side of the wall.

While this technology would have obvious applications for military personal (in locating terrorists within buildings) as well as search and rescue operations, Camero's XaverTM 400 could also help scientists explore and locate hidden caves (that is if someone is willing to hike the device all the way up the mountain).

Here is a brief video highlighting more about the XaverTM "see through" technology (hat tip: Israeli Export).
