iPad App Gives Users Superman-Style X-Ray Vision

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have X-ray vision? Well a new iPad app has made that possible.

From complex engines and sports bikes to the humble desk lamp and kitchen toaster, the ‘X is for X-Ray‘ app has 26 objects that only Superman’s X-ray vision could expect to reveal. Using new X-ray technologies Hugh Turvey, Artist in Residence at the Royal Institute for Radiology, mapped objects in three dimensions in both X-ray and solid form.
