According to Indian newspaper Rediff, "the pervert's dream has come true." A Japanese company has developed a camera attachement for cell phones capable of seeing through clothes.

The 'X-ray mobile camera attachment' allows Peeping Toms to see through clothes -- skirts, trousers, shirts and blouses -- and is said to be particularly effective on dark bikinis.

The cameras give users a high-end function like 'night vision' by picking up on heat radiation to create outline pictures. Because bodies are hotter than clothes, the pictures produce an image of the body without the clothes, thus making these cameras a voyeur's delight.

Originally designed to help people take pictures at night, the �100 (US $183, CDN $225) attachment is finding a market among voyeurs who are snapping up the device online.
