Red light looks into your body in truly revolutionary technology

In a series of mind-bending demos, inventor Mary Lou Jepsen shows how we can use red light to see and stimulate what’s inside our bodies and brains. Taking us to the edge of optical physics, Jepsen unveils new technologies that utilize light and sound to track tumors, measure neural activity and could eventually replace the MRI machine with a cheaper, more efficient and wearable system for detecting or tracking tumors and other growths.

Huge Breakthrough. They can now use red light to see anywhere inside the body at the resolution of the smallest nueron in the brain (6 microns) yes it works through skin and bone including the skull. Faster imaging than MRI and FMRI too! Full brain readouts now possible.

Full brain readouts and computer brain interactions possible. Non invasive. Non destructive.

The technique is relatively straightforward, although this TED talk is the very first public display of this amazing technology. It’s a little technical, so give yourself a quiet moment to watch it. This is how a reddit user describes it: 

  1. Shine red light into body.

  2. Modulate the color to orange with sound sent into body to targeted deep point.

  3. Make a camera based hologram of exiting orange wavefront using matching second orange light.

  4. Read and interpret the hologram from the camera electronic chip in one millionth of a second.

  5. Scan a new place until finished.

This blows expensive MRI machines out of the water. It means that medical diagnostics will be very cheap – and wearable. This technology has biotech, nanotech, AI, 3-D printing, robotics control, and life extension cryogenics freezing /reconstruction implications. It’s amazing.
