X-Ray glasses, everyone wanted them as a kid, and now pilots of the new F-35 Joint Strike Fighter are getting something close. This technology will allow pilots to see the the fuselage of their aircraft! When asked about this technology, a Ministry of Defense spokesperson said "“It even will superimpose infra-red imagery on to the visor to allow the pilot to look through the cockpit floor at night and see the world below – like something out of Terminator. This is absolutely the cutting edge of technology.”

It's crazy how technology is progressing. Roughly twenty years ago, when Terminator was released, I'm sure they would've never guessed that this level of technology would be available this soon. It'll only be a matter of time before this tech makes it into the automotive industry. I can see it now "The new Ford 360; A regular car with a 360 degree view of the world around you, it's the first automobile to feature zero blind spots." So this tech will be pretty exciting to watch - sdy284 *News Editor*
