LEXID Camera Can See Through Walls
by Mark R
I think we all knew that a device like this was inevitable. After all, everyone dreams of being Superman, and it isn’t just because of the super-strength and flying, but the X-ray vision.
Some company out of Torrance California called Physical Optics Corporation is presently working on a camera that can see through walls. This device, called LEXID (Lobster-Eye X-ray Inspection Device) can see through wood, concrete, and steel by beaming X-rays, and then focusing on reflection of objects.
I’m sure you are wondering why our edible crustacean friend the lobster is included in the acronym on this device. Well, apparently Lobsters have this innate ability to see through murky waters that we are seeking to emulate.
Assuming they ever do get this LEXID working, the plan is to have these available for government agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security. Man, does that make me nervous.
Hey, isn’t there something about x-rays and radiation that could be potentially lethal? Unless the plan is to use these on the enemy, I would highly suggest some kind of perfection of testing.
In the meantime, let’s keep this out of commercial sales. Unless we intend to shield all high school girls locker rooms with lead wallpaper.
