Humans get X-Ray Vision in Augmented Reality

 Seen this in previous worlds we experimented with.   Concept interesting. 

MIT researchers invented an augmented reality headset that gives humans X-ray vision. The invention, dubbed X-AR, combines wireless sensing with computer vision to enable users to see hidden items. X-AR can help users find missing items and guide them toward these items for retrieval. This new technology has many applications in retail, warehousing, manufacturing, smart homes, and more.
