Common WiFi Can Detect Weapons, Bombs and Chemicals in Bags

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Ordinary WiFi can easily detect weapons, bombs and explosive chemicals in bags at museums, stadiums, theme parks, schools and other public venues, according to a Rutgers University–New Brunswick-led study.
