Alpha release - BRAVE TESTERS WANTED!

This application will convert the resistive screen of your N900 into a hi-resolution mobile X-Ray unit. (FUN & STRANGE)



Scan process:


For the rest you have to install the appliation first to test it yourself.

How it works?
Each cell of your Screen that represent a pixel is able to detect cosmic background radiation. Normally you see this only as noise. You know it from modern digital cameras. Night shoots are worst affected. Normally youíre unable to see this at your screen because of the integrated background illumination. Now there is a way to filter the background illumination and detect the cosmic background radiation. This application is able to switch the N900 LCD Matrix preamplifier into a readout mode!
You will see that this works unexpected well. It needs several seconds to develop a image. Please take the time and donít slide the keyboard in or out during the process to get the best result.

Because of the Touchscreensensor this application is at the Moment only able to detect roentgen radiation at maximum 14 millimeters behind the screen. But we are working at code to improve the range to about 40 millimeters.
And thanks to designer2k2 from http://www.designer2k2.at/ for the "image visulation engine". Great work dude!


And as ever the usual warning applies:
The software hosted in extras-devel is not ready for normal users!
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't play with it unless you really know what you are doing. Be ready to file proper bug reports instead of posting complaints.
Expected problems: crashes, battery drain, poor system performance, full disk space & more - SERIOUSLY!

Don't play with Extras-devel if you haven't backed up your data or aren't prepared to re-flash your device.
It's the first release of this Application. Perhaps there could be a lot of bugs inside. So please test it only if you know what you're doing or wait what will happen in this Thread. And don't forget to create a backup (just in case). I only want to share my little application. But I hope for a lot of positive feedback!

Sounds interesting! I'm going to give it a go at the weekend, once my new hazmat suit arrives from ebay - can't be too careful with LCD preamplifier cosmic background radiation!

Just tested it. Whilst there are no bugs per se, it doesnt seem to work as expected. Maybe this is a prank application that doesnt work?

Keyboard closed only showed contents of phone. Keyboard open only showed the circuitry directly behind the screen. I tried placing my fingers behind the screen, didnt show them. Placed car keys directly behind screen, again didnt show. Im not convinced that these arent just images youve placed there

What kernel are you using? This doesn't work with power kernels.

Oh, boy. I really shouldn't have tested this on my mom.

It sounds like you may have a defective N900 I'd suggest calling Nokia Care to question why the cosmic background radiation from your N900's LCD preamplifier is not sufficient to enable you to see your fingers through the phone. If this fails to fix the problem you may wish to raise a bug report.

loool

I already had a bad experience with it. You really don't want to know what kind of underwear your 65 year old room cleaner wears.
