Augmented reality system lets you see through walls


www.newscien tist.com


If only drivers could see through walls, blind corners and other dangerous road junctions would be much safer. Now an augmented reality system has been built that could just make that come true (see video, above).

The prototype uses two cameras: one that captures the driver's view and a second that sees the scene behind a view-blocking wall. A computer takes the feed from the second camera and layers it on top of the images from the first so that the wall appears to be transparent.

Wow i like this a lot, imagine this tech being built into every motor vehicle windscreen .. or spectacles for a super spy


my only objection would be "hey you cant put all those camera's up, spying on the population all the time and with this system probably spying on every square inch of a city"

But heck they already did in the guise of traffic and crime monitors so why not put it to some use?

the only drawback (apart from computing power and information transfer required for such an intricate system)

i bet a few people Drive straight into buildings.

"But officer i swear that wall wasn't there a minute ago"
