Once upon a time, lighting was considered as a miracle, but science understood it and made others do that. Supernatural powers are next for it. How about an eye that will let you see through a wall or any kind of stuff that hinders your vision? The Physical Optics Corporation Company is working on a camera based on lobster eyes, which can fulfill one of the most desired dreams of human kind.
Handheld 'Lobster-Eye' X-ray Inspection Device (LEXID) can focus and acquire backscattering photons from a hidden object behind a wall. When the X-ray optic focusing is combined with the X-ray detector, exposure dose is significantly lowered, greatly enhancing image resolution, while the emitter side increases flow of X-rays for penetration though stuff. LEXID can see through wood, concrete and even steel by beaming X-rays.
In brief, this concept works by emitting X-rays and analyzing the reflections. The airport security and army, especially, hope will enjoy most of its benefits in its operations.
However, if you belong to none these professions, you can use it to peep into your neighbor's drawing room or can feed your curiosities, you can't do otherwise.
