Ultrasonic Detector


An Ultrasonic Detector is a rare handheld device associated with ComStar. Weighing three kilograms the detector sends out a high-frequency pulse of sound which bounces off objects, then detects those echos and translate the ultrasonic vibrations into a rough visual image on the device's small screen. The effect of this allows the user to know the approximate location of objects and people and, since the vibrations can pass through solid objects, "see" through walls. However the detector has a maximum range of just ten meters, and the image created is of very poor quality.[1]
