MIT X-ray Vision Now possible

There is no question the United States ambition to create super soldiers is an ongoing process that has given rise to crazy and incredible discoveries in various technology departments. From flying Humvees, to micro drones, MIT University researchers at Lincoln center have announced they have created a radar array that provides real-time images of whats happening on the other side of solid structures, even if its an 8 inch thick solid concrete wall 60 feet away.
If this isn't impressive take note that 99 percent of radar signals are lost when penetrating a wall and another 99 is lost when the signals are reflected back. Using a leverage method on signal amplifiers, MIT University Researchers have created a powerful digital processing "new radar system" that basically amounts to a real-time video of movements on the other side of solid structures walls at 10.8 fps(Frames per second). The US military is taking a good look at this technology and we can all bet they will use it in some degree to further spur the almighty "Future Super Soldier Program". Giving soldiers this type of tech will give them a ten fold advantage during dangerous urban conflict areas and more than likely save lives on both ends, soldiers and innocent civilians alike. I was thinking that it wont be long till DARPA gets involved in this project and further expand the capabilities of such a system. All will be be seen in due time and lets hope for the best.

Man that's crazy, I wish I had x-ray vision.

This is going to help in wartime combat.

Dude, i keep hearing all kinds of weird stuff coming from MIT. Crap like levitation and even bending off light, enabling invisibility.

They're only possible in extreme, controlled conditions but still, future's right here, man.

Makes me kind of scared to think of what else they're developing over there.

What? How do these people make these types of things? The technology these days is almost scary.

hmmm very interesting.

Matter of time before this was out.

That's like... Call of Duty brought to life! I don't recall to have seen X-ray vision in the game, though, but still... :D

Wow... that is so coool! :D

Now we just need to gather all this technology and implement it into a human being.

I never asked for this. xD
