See through camera let you see it all - should it be legal?

See through cameras are on store shelves right now as we speak.

Before we talk about theses, here's the dilemma...

While these cameras allow Law Enforcement to see through black windows, which is a great capability as they investigate a wide range of criminals and their activities...

They also allow the average Joe, that's you and me, to look at people and see through their clothes.

Ok, so it doesn't allow to peep underneath a winter jacket or any thick material.But it let you "see it all" with many swim wear, dresses and many types of tight clothes.

So before we go into what technology and equipment makes this "super vision" possible, I just want to be clear...

I am not advocating to people to use the information in this article to look at people and see through their clothes.This article is meant to be informative - to inform you about this invading technology and what you may expose yourself to, especially in the summer.You may just be able to spot someone with such a cam and change venue not to be the subject of this person's hobby anymore.

Ok, here we go...

The science and technology that make "see through" possible:

Just know that all reflected light (off any object) that we can see with the naked eye represents what we call the "visible light".

But our eyes cannot see a portion of the light reflected all around us.Including portion of the light underneath the surface of objects that gets to us but can't see with the naked eye.

Now,
Infrared rays can penetrate materials and objects quite easily.So the idea is to have a way to look at only the infrared rays that penetrated a material or medium - something we cannot do with the naked eye - while filtering out the reflected normal light (off the clothing and the skin underneath).

To achieve this you need two things.

The two pieces of equipment needed to achieve this "bionic vision":
-An infrared sensitive camera
- An IR (infrared) filter

Infrared sensitive camera:
One of the most popular model is the Sony night camera.This popular Sony model is a good infrared sensitive device choice. Only you also need an IR filter.

Infrared (IR) filter:
This is the part that filter out the reflected normal light off the clothing and the skin underneath.

There are many cheap models on the market. Many cheap models requires you to make modifications to your camcorder. One good model which doesn't require any modification is the ADXIR filter. You just add it to a night camcorder and voila.

While see through cameras are a reality, it's my understanding that peeping Toms looking around at people with this equipment is not a common occurrence.

Not to mention you will notice anyone staring at you with a camcorder, wether it is a see through camera or not. And can act accordingly.
