MAPHIN / Ultrasonic Wave Map device


To save the world, James Bond is faced with dangerous situations and enemies. It's very important for them to identify their enemies, which move in small numbers. The ultrasound device delivers information such as the surrounding terrain and location of the enemy to ensure safe missions for agents jumping into enemy positions for operations.
Bats and dolphins can hear ultrasonic waves that humans cannot hear. They use the ultrasound to find the prey, to understand the surrounding terrain. It uses ultrasonic waves, like bats and dolphins, to share information about the structure of a building or the location of its enemies.
