Hey, earlier this week I read an article about how WiFi can be used to detect motion. Motion sensing isn't an extraordinarily cool thing, however what makes this really cool is how it doesn't need line of sight on the object. This would be really useful as it could "scan" something behind a wall and show you roughly what would be behind it.

As this is my first post, I cannot link directly to the article, but just Google searching "WiSee" will bring you right to it.

Currently, the technology is limited to rather large, sweeping gestures to trigger commands, however I see no reason why the concept could not be applied to a Halo styled motion sensor, where you don't really get a specific 3d model, but you get location and size.

Does anyone else have any thoughts about this?
