Perverts rejoice: the camera that can see through clothes

If this is a hoax, it’s a convincing one: a camera that can see through obstacles such as spilt ink or clothing.

Here’s the model:

And here’s what the camera sees:

There’s something vaguely disturbing about that first image.

  1. Hmm. According to their How It Works page, it works by filtering out all non-infrared light and then converting the infrared light into visible light. In other words, it’s an infrared camera. That’s not a new invention, is it? And no-one’s mentioned before that infrared cameras can see through fabric or ink. So there’s something they’re not telling us — which is fair enough; they’re entitled to a bit of secrecy. Or maybe it’s a hoax.

  2. Well, in fact, when Sony first released the NightShot function on its video cameras (which uses an infrared light to video in total darkness) there were a spate of stories of clothes appearing translucent when people were video’d using the NightShot function. And it may be that the pigments in ink reflect only visible light. It would probably depend on the ink, though.

  3. Is there anything the two of you don’t know? ;-)

  4. Well, I didn’t know about the NightShot thing.

    Or do you mean the two of us collectively?

  5. Collectively :)

  6. I wonder if we can do tag-team Mastermind.
