You Can Now Have X-Ray Vision

One of the coolest superpowers that Superman has in the comic books was X-ray vision. Superman was able to detect where the villain was if he was attempting to hide. In a few years, it could be possible that you can also have X-ray vision.

Scientists at the University of Texas in Dallas are working on developing a microchip that could be placed in mobile phones. The chip would then turn the phones into handheld devices that would emit electromagnetic waves. That type of radiation would allow for those devices to see through walls and clothing.

For scientific purposes, the application could be used to find studs in walls, to detect counterfeit money, or to detect cancer by analyzing the breath of a person. However, if this concept was ever sold publicly, then we all know what it would be used for.
