Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen discovered the X Ray by accident in 1895. The London Pall Mall Gazette reported in 1896:
“You can see other people’s bones with the naked eye…..On the revolting indecency of this there is no need to dwell.”
Shortly thereafter many scientists including Edward Waymouth Reid began conducting experiments with x rays before the safety issues were considered
“Passage of the rays for an hour through the head of a laboratory boy of medium intelligence did not in my hands cause deterioration or improvement thereof.” Scot.Med.Surg.J. 1897
“Professor Kuenen, who in those days himself made all the college vacuum tubes, was my colleague in the sport. In his attempts to get a picture of a fountain pen in the pocket of my waistcoat worn front to back, he succeeded in damaging a good square foot of the varnish of my casing, though luckily the insulation of my field coils held out, and I can still command enough amperes to electrolyse a lobster mayonnaise.
“The early X-rays shadow pictures were a real delight. We groped for swallowed teeth within the entrails, of criminals supplied by the Bell Street authorities, and located bullets within the skulls of living men.”
Advanced Intelligence say they can give you x ray vision in colour if you buy their glasses for the introductory price of $2800.00. Here’s a sample of what to expect if you’re prepared to spend time hanging out at the pool in a pair of their specs
