Latest Invention: Technology that Allows Seeing Through Skin and Around Corners


Researchers managed to find a new method of seeing images through such materials as frosted glass or skin. The new technology also allows seeing images around the corners.

The method is quick, simple and involves the use of natural light instead of lasers.

The technology from Prof Silberberg and colleagues at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel makes use of a spatial light modulator to "undo" the dispersion that makes objects unclear or non-reflecting.

Researchers say that their new method could be used in biological and medical studies. It could help tackle highly diffused white brain matter in neurological imaging, for example.
