The ”see-trough” goggles a.k.a. the millimetre wave scanner

Who would have thought that these mythical glasses would ever actually come to life?

The true Simpsons fans like I will of course remember Bart bearing in mind ordering a pair of “X-Ray goggles” that let you see trough clothes before ending his choice on a spy cam in season 1 episode 10 of the show aired in 1990. What was considered a sci-fi joke years ago is now plain reality.

Already implemented into several airports in the US for security purposes, the millimetre wave scannairport_scannerers allow detecting non metallic weapons and explosives devices by modeling people in 3D without their clothes. Although this specific application raises privacy concerns, I find this technology very impressive as it opens a brand new market to the world of 3D.

I just can’t wait to find out what the next gadget to be brought to life will be; I got my money on the time traveling DeLorean!
