Seeng around corners

    _Round the Bend_

    _The Economist_ has a short article on new technology being developed by Daniele Faccio of Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland.The research team is developing a laser based device and method for seeing around corners that would have broad applications for users ranging from soldiers to motorists. Illustratively speaking, it involves making a 'bank shot' with a special laser and then observing a small number of scattered, reflected photons and interpreting the result. It appears to be a very interesting mix of several different areas of science, technology and engineering.
