New X-Ray Gun Sees Through Walls--Or Clothing

Remember those ads in comic books that advertised X-ray specs that would let the viewer see through walls--and girls' dresses?

Now the dream of horny teen-agers everywhere is reality. Technology workers in London have invented a new hand X-ray scanner, which they claim may take police and customs officials into a science fiction-like future.

In fact, it's said that it gives "officers the superhero power to see through walls."
The LEXID X-ray scanner may allow officers to seek out contraband, weapons, bombs or hidden people, say inventors.

Rick Shie, senior vice-president of its American inventors, Physical Optics Corporation, has revealed that sends out low-level X-rays that get collected in a lens based on the design of a lobster's eye.

It may be noted that lobsters' eyes, which are able to see in deep, murky water, use thousands of tiny squares to focus by reflection rather than the bending or refraction of light like human eyes. "The LEXID works by emitting a low-level X-ray and then the lobster eye interprets what is returned and the image is produced on a screen," Shie said.
Shie added a thought that made us think that there are a lot of ex-comic book readers now working in government buildings.

"We have conducted successful trials and the US government is keen to test it." he added.

I'll bet.
