New 3D Laser Camera Has One Kilometer Range

Physicists at Heriot-Watt University developed a technique which uses lasers to scan almost any object.
With extra research, the camera's range could extend to 10km (6.2 miles), the team said.
It will primarily be used to scan objects such as vehicles - but is unable to detect human skin.
The reason is that skin does not reflect the laser in the same way as most other objects - meaning for those wishing to evade the camera's gaze, stripping naked is an option.
