You can See Through Walls with Wi-Vi

Researchers at MIT have developed this latest technology of Wi-Vi via which you can see through walls using. Wi-Vi use Wi-Fi signals to see through walls.

The government was concerned regarding Google Glass. But Wi-Vi makes Google Glass look like small potatoes. Built by researchers at MIT, this leading edge technology is still in its initial phase. By using a wireless device they can determine the spatial position of a moving object behind a brick wall. The equipment used for this is not very costly. And it can be acquired from any hardware store. Moreover, it can be converted into a number of devices. The uses too are quite versatile. Search operations and law enforcement come to mind.

Likewise, consumers too could use the device for their express purposes. It is the best thing for surveillance. If you are walking alone at night and feel as if someone is following you, the device could allow you to see someone around the corner. It does not let you see someone dressing for a party, at least not yet that is. The resolution is so low that this is not possible. However, the techies at MIT are working on this aspect as well. Facial recognition is one feature that may appear soon. This raises worries and concerns. Wi-Vi works by sending Wi-Fi signals and measuring them as they are reflected back from the objects behind the wall. This device especially allows you to detect moving objects. This is where human beings come into the equation.

While radar and sonar too could act as substitutes, there is a reason for Wi-Vi. Not only is it dirt cheap to make but it uses far less electricity. Then there is the size factor. It is much smaller and compact. At the core of this technological innovation lies the silicon chip. In fact, it pretty much relies on the selfsame stuff that goes into the making of a Wi-Fi. The army may have use for such a handy device. Then people trapped beneath earthquake rubble can be detected via this smart gadget. It is a really cool mechanism. Yet it opens up a Pandora’s Box. The law could be flagrantly disregarded using Wi-Vi technology. It definitely has its dangers. However, that is the case with every form of technology. The use to which it is put depends upon those who have control over it.
