Considering that major efforts have been devoted towards seeing things inside of us -[ lots of work on staining with fluorotags (small particles) that emit light at specific wavelenghts to bypass the highly scattering tissue of our skin] – it is evident that this finding becomes breakthrough research since it does exactly the opposite in a revolutionary way:
In a nutshell, It doesn’t try to make things inside brighter, instead, it renders what prevents you from seeing inside transparent.
Well to every problem there is more than one approach. Science, once more teaches us to step outside the box.
