NHK Develops Camera for People Behind Plywood

NHK is not just the official broadcaster in Japan, it also develops advanced technology in its industry. For instance, this “millimeter-wave TV camera” can capture images of objects or people using radio waves instead of visible light, making it possible to view objects hidden behind obstacles like a piece of plywood or fog.

The camera emits waves in 60GHz band towards objects and captures the reflections. The device then time-separates signals coming from objects hidden behind obstructions, which can be useful in saving people from fires as well as locating people buried under a heap of rubble ravaged by earthquakes. Watch the video for more information.
