    It reminds me of a) The regular stories you hear about an ordinary bloke who makes his car run on a pint of piss at 300mph for 1,000mi and will have his invention to market in about a year then you never hear of him again. b) Every mad-professor super-villan who's invention ever so nearly destroys the world. I bet he's got a really fit looking daughter/grand-daughter/neice who just happens to be going out with an ordinary guy who by a stroke of luck is the only person who can see the potential calamity approaching and has just the right technical knowledge to save us all while still remaining cool enough to play quarter-back and be in trouble with his high-school principle, nothing serious just pranks 'n stuff.

    He's a bit late to the market with this, I have a device that lets me see through walls, in fact I have lots, they're called "windows"....

    Do I detect a slight whiff of "scam" in this?

    IMO it looks more Captain Scarlet the A-team.... :D

    Surely any alternative to Windows is gonna get plenty support around here.

    I think that the suit in the picture is the one he tried to sell on eBay. Perhaps, if he'd been wearing it, he'd have avoided the "malaise" caused, according to "his friends at MIT", by "splashback".

    :rolleyes:

    All of them? That is truly amazing. I mean, it's hard enough just to defy one stinking rule of physics, much less all of them.

    I don't want to buy one until it comes in a handheld.

    I didn't see it mentioned there, but I'm sure its powered by cold fusion :D

    I'll believe it when I see the pre-orders from hotel managers and college girls' basketball coaches. :rolleyes:

    Geraldo Rivera has already ordered one to use before opening his next vault on live TV.

    He could have just made a backscatter X-Ray machine. It doesn't say that it made the walls transparent but just that he saw through them.

    His "Hyde" effect has symptoms similar to mild radiation poisoning...

    I would love to see this gizmo in action though. Provided I was wearing a lead cup...

    The article implies that the walls become transparent:
    And, really, do you think a simple X-ray machine would require all of this:
    I mean, it has seven industrial lasers and eight plasma light rods. That must be how it works. :rolleyes:

    The thing is, if this actually happened, why isn't there video or a picture of it? Riiiight.....

    And if you have two of them and cross the beams what happens?

    Uhm, if it destroys anything that is set in its path, wouldn't that make this a bad thing? If I thought it was real, I'd be a little scared.

    I think the questions we all really want to know now that such a device has been invented are:



    A) Will it help me download porn faster?


    B) Does this mean the Powerbook G5's are here?



    EDIT: WOOHOO! 500th post!

    I wish that there would have been a picture of what the view is like. Until this becomes a little more portable, it won't be very useful.

    I'm not as skeptical as the rest of you. Maybe it's just the conspiracy-theorist in me coming out, but I think it's plausible. It'd be pretty cool if it was. I don't think France would pay him $40,000 bucks if it wasn't at least partly for real.
