The 21st century periscope: 'Superhero' camera uses lasers to peek around corners


It is the stuff that superheroes are made of.  But the power to see round corners could soon be yours.

British scientists are creating a camera that can peer round corners without the aid of a mirror.

By taking pictures at the speed of light, it should be able to reveal hidden objects – from people, to parked cars, to military tanks.

It could be used by the Army to distinguish friend from foe, by rescue teams searching for survivors in collapsed buildings or mines, or simply by motorists who struggle to reverse park.
