X-Ray Vision! Finally!

I came across this awesome idea for augmented reality on BoingBoing today. Developed by Peter Barnum, Yaser Sheikh, Ankur Datta, and Takeo Kanade at the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute, this new application for augmented reality lets you see through walls, if only simulated. The in-car view around a corner that they show in the video would make driving safer for sure, but imagine the security and military applications as well. You could see see whats around a corner before the enemy even knows you’re there. The improvements to building security would be phenomenal. Imagine a bank of security monitors with no blind spots on them. Amazing! Lets hope this idea comes to fruition someday soon!

    Hello. I just needed to make you aware that some elements of your site are tricky to scan for me, as I’m color blind. I am afflicted by protanopia, but there are more kinds of color blindness which will also get issues. I can understand the majority of the web site Okay, and the areas I have difficulties with I am able to comprehend by using a custom browser. In any case, it would be great if you could bear in mind us color-blind types when doing your next web page design. Thank you.
