Non-line-of-sight imaging using phasor-field virtual wave optics (nature.com)

It's weird to see a computational photography paper in Nature. It doesn't really seem like the right venue.

This feels like the future.

in simple terms, seeing around corners.

More like "anything that reflects some light is a mirror". It's now possible to undo diffusion by number-crunching. Not very well, though. See the pictures in the paper.

May be good enough as long as some features are distinguishable (say a person holding a gun). Thermal imaging isn't exactly the clearest, but it's very useful.
