Android app SpyGlass enables your smartphone to see through clothes
posted by Nick T. / Apr 01, 2011, 1:35 AM
The way SpyGlass works is not exactly rocket science, but it required quite some time to be spent fine tuning. When the rear facing camera on the smartphone is activated, SpyGlass amplifies the infrared spectrum of light, which you cannot normally see, and blends it with the visible video feed. Since infrared light has a longer wavelength, it can easily pass through finer fabrics, after which it gets reflected back by the skin just like visible sunlight.
Several countries, among which Portugal, Greece, and Italy, are already considering banning SpyGlass from being used because of the moral issues that it brings up, especially when the summer months are right around the corner. We suggest that you give it a try while it is still available for download – link to the app has been posted for you below. Use it responsibly!

I knew the moment I saw the title that this was your April Fool's article. Funny one, guys. And way to appeal to male instinct to entice us. :)

the fact that he they said "it was not rocket science" and then they start talking about "infrared spectrum of light" Almost fell for it plus if I'm not mistakenhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L

Ha, you got me. I actually was just watching a show on Discovery Channel about this topic, and how you can alter a camera by switching certain lens to make this effect, so I bought right in to this prank....... And yes this is possible, but can only see through a very small amount of fabrics, so you're chances of peeking aren't very good.

If we're thinking of the same show, it also talked about some of those camcorders have that ability built in. If you own a one of Sony's older camcorders it'll have something called Night Vision mode but if you toggle that on during the day it'll outline the body and underwear beneath thin clothing. That show illustrated a few dozen examples but every single one was terrible, could not really make out anything other than a super faint image. She/he would have to be wearing something that was already nearly translucent for the effect to be really noticeable. Not impressed.
