You must have seen Superman using his laser vision to see through objects in the movies. It was pretty cool to watch in the films but now there is a product in town, that works similarly. Meet the Walabot, a pretty ominous name, but it offers great functionality.
The device is one of a kind with not much alternatives, and hence people are not overly welcome towards the Walabot. Most of them doubt whether it is worth the price tag, or simply is it required at all. In this review, we will be checking out the features of the Walabot in detail and see whether the device is needed at all.
What Exactly is the Walabot?
Walabot is basically a 3D imaging sensor, that can be used to see through pipes and walls within 4 inches in thickness. It can detect objects like wood, plastic, wires, conduit, and PVC pipes. Besides the static objects, they can also detect movements. For example, you can check whether there are some rodents hiding behind the wall. Besides, you also detect termite nests and beehives as well.
Practically, you might have wanted to hammer a nail into the wall to hang a painting or an object. Just when you have set up everything and started to hammer, you might have realized that it doesn’t go in. On further inspection, you might find an obstruction within the wall. In such situations, the Walabot can save you a lot of time and energy.
How Does it Work?
The device uses radio waves to see through walls. The received radio waves have characteristics different from the outgoing radio waves. This helps in the identification of objects and movement.
The device is connected to our Android phone/ Tablet via a USB cable. A dedicated Android app is used to provide the interface. The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. All you need to do is to just Search for Walabot DIY.
The app will not work without the Device. The app is exclusive to the Android platform as of now, there are no iPhone alternatives available.
