MIT Develops Device That Can See People Through Walls

A device that detects people using radio frequencies — even through walls — has been developed by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab. The MIT team touts multiple uses for the new technology if it can be improved, including the ability to control devices in other parts of a house or office with body movements. It can distinguish between 15 individuals with 90 percent accuracy.It works similar to Microsoft Kinect, which uses body movements to play video games, MIT said.Other uses could include film making, where actors who now use sensor-tracking suits for special effects could obtain the same effect without the suit.It also could be used by firefighters to see if anyone is inside a burning building or could monitor family members to see if…
