Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW) and Italy's Polytechnic University of Milan have created a non-line-of-sight imaging technique that can display video of hidden scenes in real time. The technique combines ultra-fast and highly sensitive light sensors with an advanced video reconstruction algorithm. The method captures information about a scene by bouncing light off a surface and detecting the echoes of that light as it bounces back; it sees around corners by detecting the reflections of those echoes. UW’s Andreas Velten said, “It’s basically echolocation, but using additional echoes—like with reverb.”  .... '
