UT Dallas Researchers Look To Give Your Smartphone X-Ray Vison

When you were a kid you probably debated with your friends which super power would be the best to have. If you were the kid who said x-ray vision, your dream may be coming true thanks to some University of Texas at Dallas researchers.

To pull off the ability to make your smart phone an x-ray machine, scientists tapped into a portion of electromagnetic field that exists between microwave and infrared known as the terahertz range. The technology should easily integrated into your mobile phone.

For privacy reasons the equipment is being designed to operate at no more than four inches from it’s target.

The creator believes it will be useful for finding wall studs, verifying documents in sealed envelopes and detecting counterfeit money.

So maybe you aren’t Superman, but your pictures wont be falling off the wall anytime soon.
