Amazon introduces X-Ray technology for its new Kindle Fires
One of the more interesting feature with the new Fires is the X-Ray technology. It works with movies, books and textbooks. Here is how it works.
X-Ray for movies allows you to simply tap on a scene to see which actors are in it right there. From there you can go straight to their other movies and learn more about them. Neat!
X-Ray for books delves even deeper. With you can easily find chapters and locations mentioning the ideas, characters and places mentioned in the book. You can also explore author biographies and get more background information.
Finally, X-Ray for textbooks is probably most useful for learners who want to know more about a topic. One tap brings all related pages in the textbook you’re reading, but also brings up related content from Wikipedia and YouTube.

Corny, korny corny. there is a software program that allows you to do this with any home movie system. It's not called X ray technology either. I may or may not say the name of the company, but it's nothing exclusive that the consumer can't do on their own! ROFL
I thought there was going to be some kind of real X-ray feature like in a doctors office, and I was thinking like WTF.Not a bad feature to have for free though!

Oh yeah like I really think X ray equipment should be on a phone or tablet. I was thinking that they may have made a unit that doctors could buy that did that genius, and no I would not expect that it would not be offered to the public ok!

oh well there is ..it is called ultra sound and Doppler :P pretty much portable ...and no those are just sound waves not radiations any kind of radiation that have the power to penetrate cuz ionization so it is far from happening unless they find any kind of radiations and u would look for a physicist to do that be4 any adoption to a handset
p.s. wasnt talkin seriously be4 :P
