Light Sight / Fetal Imaging System

Light Sight
Light Sight

With the development of near infrared imaging, scientists have found a new way to see through normally opaque materials. To utilize this emerging technology we have created Light Sight. It is a system of 7 small pods that are placed on a pregnant woman’s belly. The central pod emits an array of near-infrared LED light, passing through an expecting mother’s skin into the womb. The surrounding pods receive the scattered light and use it to process a 3D image of the fetus, viewable on any device. Light Sight is stored in a compact charging case, designed to be used by midwives or walk-in clinics as a safer alternative to current technologies.
