I remember when I was a kid and watched Superman on televsion and wondered what it would be like to have his X-ray vision and see through walls. Then there were the cartoons where someone had x-ray glasses that could see someone’s skeleton. I remember the other boys in the neighborhood saying they wanted a set of x-ray glasses to see through the girls’ dresses.
Well, those perverted wishes are about to become a reality thanks to a new high technology computer chip being developed by researchers at the University of Texas in Dallas. Dr Kenneth O, director of Texas Analog Center of Excellence and chaired professor of electrical engineering at UT Dallas announced that his team has developed a chip that utilizes a range of the electromagnetic spectrum that has never been used before and that it falls between infrared and microwave.
According to Dr O,
“We've created approaches that open a previously untapped portion of the electromagnetic spectrum for consumer use and life-saving medical applications. The terahertz range is full of unlimited potential that could benefit us all.”
“CMOS is affordable and can be used to make lots of chips. The combination of CMOS and terahertz means you could put this chip and receiver on the back of a cellphone, turning it into a device carried in your pocket that can see through objects.”
Among the applications suggested by Dr O would be the ability to see the studs in walls, identify counterfeit money, using breath analysis to diagnose certain dieses, monitor air quality for toxins and even scan for tumors in the human body. The possibilities of the new terahertz chip are almost endless says the researcher,
‘There are all kinds of things you could be able to do that we just haven't yet thought about.’
But they have thought about some of them as they claim the chip will not only see through walls, but also through wood, plastic and fabric. With the decadence of American society and prevalence of perverts walking around, you know darn well that there will be those individuals who will use this technology with their cell phones looking through the clothes of women and possibly taking their photos as well.
This could well amount to the ultimate invasion of privacy as no one will know who or when someone will be looking through their clothes at their naked bodies. The very concept turns Big Brother Watching into Big Brother Peeping. Now someone needs to develop a fabric that will block the terahertz peeper technology in order to keep our wives and daughters from becoming the innocent object of some pervert.
