    MC2, a small start up has created a camera able to see through walls or detect harmful items, Millicam. It is based on a wide electromagnetic specter sensor.

    Google translation :

    Measuring waves, it detects explosives and people inside a building.

    It is a gadget that can be seen in the movies. A small French company, MC2 Technologies, has developed a camera that can see through walls, which responds to the name Millicam 90. On the market for a fortnight, she will soon equip two European airports: Albita Romania and Lisbon in Portugal.

    Specifically, it allows you to locate a living through a wall and can be used in hostage. For example, Nicolas Vellas, director of MC2 Technologies, explains that the use of this device have been used in particular by the Raid to locate the fugitive cut his home.

    Look what the camera looks like:

    The principle of this device is based on the measurement of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the body, a system similar to an infrared camera. 20 kg heavy, it is undetectable and completely harmless, because no emission or radiation. This is in contrast to systems that currently exist on the market that are based on the emission of X-rays or electromagnetic waves.

    Another feature: the camera can detect dangerous objects liquids, metal or not it is ceramic, plaster or concrete in packages or hidden under clothing. Ultimately, such devices could replace the current security gates only detect metal objects.

    Strongly looks like a computer generated image. Need big close up's of this tech :respect:

    TBH, I thought this tech was already created though this seems more refined and more easy to use. Bet it aint cheap.

    It is a computer generated image, however i saw that camera at Eurosatory recently. The tech was mostly imaginary or in video games. It is still too heavy/big/fragile for foot soldiers operations (noy yo mention paratroops), but very well suited for law enforcement, counter terrorism etc.

    By the looks of it seems to be ultra sensitive hyperspectral camera ... Technology has been around ... Rumours say it was used in navigating the heli that killed bin laden .... Its a normal camera that is more sensitive to other frequencies than light ... So its able to stitch together a false color image ... Probably what is new is its portability and low power use ...

    Santa Singh bought one such goggle which when put on wud show a person naked. he tried it in the shop and the salesgal appeared naked, he took it off and the gal appeared fully clothed. So he bought one and went home wearing it. In his house he found his wife Santo in bed with Banta Singh naked. He took off his goggles and they were still naked. He tried a few times and irrespective they appeared naked only never clothed. Santa went back to the shop and returned the goggles calling them third rate chinese stuff which failed in no time as it showed his wife and best friend naked even when he was not wearing those goggles.
