Chip lets smartphones see through walls, clothes Researchers at a Texas university have designed a chip that could give smartphones the long-envied ability of comic book hero Superman to see through walls, clothes or other objects.

The story is too old to be commented.

Is there any other reason for the common man to have such an application? ;)

mushroomwig is right. There is a reason walls were invented in the first place.

Might as well call women who wear make-up perverts, as they're only doing it to advertise themselves sexually.

We're all perverts. This device will allow us to sample the goods without paying full price. If you have a problem with it, hit the treadmill.

"The terahertz band has wavelengths that fall between microwaves used for mobile phone signals and infrared that is employed for night vision goggles"

Neither of which "see through" walls

What a load of crap.

You clearly don't understand what they're saying. They're saying the band they're using to accomplish this, terahertz, falls *between* the bands used for mobile phone signals and infrared. They're not saying that infrared / night vision can see through walls, but that the wavelengths they're using (which are *different* than the wavelengths for mobile phones and night vision) are being employed in such a way to allow them to do this.

Another important point of the article is that they've only got this working at a distance of 4 inches, so you won't be seeing straight through a wall to what is happening on the other side - the best you could hope for here is to locate studs / wiring through drywall.

Oh, and as for the "pervert" concerns / dreams up above... if you're waving your cell phone around a ladies shirt from just 4 inches away, you're going to get caught.
