Interesting. I could see it being useful in future manned and unmanned space flight, dependent upon the robustness of the material.

FTFA: "Then we use some very elegant maths which was developed in computational imaging to turn that data into a 2D picture," he told the Science podcast.

Quotation FAIL: Americans don't use the term "maths".

I would love to have a cheap way of tracing pipes and wires in walls. I suspect every people with an older house would as well. Been in this place for two years and there are still some switches that I can't figure out. Flip them on/off and nothing happens anywhere in or outside the house.

In my house there's this light switch that doesn't do anything. Every so often I would flick it on and off just to check. Yesterday, I got a call from a woman in Madagascar. She said, "Cut it out."

Are you sure they don't control a single plug in an outlet? I have a few like that in my house.

/Hates switch controlled outlets
