Research work supported by the US DoD’s advanced research projects DARPA might contribute to seeing around the corner. Future uses might lead to the affordable, real-world applications of both near and distant scenes.

Those future applications include disaster relief, medical imaging and military uses. The technique could also find use outside of around-the-corner imaging, such as improving autonomous vehicle imaging systems. 

The new technique developed by the University of Wisconsin–Madison researchers uses many ultra-fast and highly sensitive light sensors and an improved video reconstruction algorithm to greatly speed the time it takes to display the hidden scenes.
