Angel Light Sees Through Walls
image Troy Hurtubise claims that he's invented a machine, dubbed the Angel Light, that can see through walls. It doesn't really matter what the wall is made of: wood, ceramic, steel, tin, titanium, even lead. The Angel Light can see right through it, just as if a window had opened up in the wall. Of course, he built this thing in his garage (where else?). The idea for the invention came to him in a dream, and he built it without the aid of any blueprints, drawings or schematics. Although Troy may hope to one day be known throughout the world as the inventor of the Angel Light, he's already well known as the inventor of the URSUS MARK VII, a suit that can help a man withstand the attack of a Grizzly Bear (see that suit in the right corner of the thumbnail? That's the Grizzly suit). So from Grizzly Bear suits to Machines That Can See Through Walls. No one can accuse him of not having an interesting resume.

WOW, I just found out about Angel Light and stumble on this whole shout box about it.

If he wants to be known by people, there he has succeeded.

I was thinking it was a bit far fetched of a plan and why haven't I seen it on the news yet?

Oh well, if hes onto somthing good luck to him.

Hope it works out for you Troy wink

Wow, I find it difficult to imagine people can actually believe this guy. Basic physics people...

i can imagine coming back to this talkback in a few years and find cranky media guy still going on about what a hoax it is and snarkely bashing anyone who suggests slightly otherwise. i think that by now everyone knows what your long winded stance is on this. so here's your pat on the back buddy, you certainly told everyone so oh deity of all that is logical and last sane person on earth that you are. everyone gets their jollies somehow, whether it's making up seemingly impossible claims, believing in such impossible claims, or combating everyone who believes those claims endlessly until the end of time in a small pocket of the internet i may never remember to find my way back to. i hope that when you find this comment addressed to you you'll get that little thrill that only opposition to your logic in this talkback can give you

Gee, Vlad, as for me allegedly constantly commenting here, uh, let's check the facts. My previous comment is dated Feb. 6th, 2008. Today is Nov. 23. Yup, I'm ALWAYS here, putting my two cents in, all right!

Now, do you have anything on the topic of Angel Light to contribute?

Well golly garsh darn gee, Crank, as for you allegedly constantly commenting here, uh, let's check the facts. Uh, your first comment is dated uh, Sun Jan 23, 2005 at 04:25 AM. Uh, your previous comment is dated Sun Nov 23, 2008 at 01:38 AM, uh, not even 2 hours after I took you to task for being obsessed with snarky conflict on this talkback. Yup, you really are ALWAYS here, putting your two cents in, all right, uh!

Wow, vlad...the manner in which you are accusing CMG of being snarky sure is...snarky.

As for CMG's alleged obsessiveness...this is just a guess, but it's likely CMG has subscribed to email notifications for new entries into this thread...not because he is "obsessive" but because he is interested in rationalism/skepticism in generaly, and is interested in applying it to the Angel Light in particular. As am I.

I can offer additional context: this site is called "The Museum of Hoaxes." The whole point of this site is that skepticism is an invaluable tool when it comes to evaluating unproven claims, particularly in the case of unproven extraordinary claims.

If you want to engage in unstructured speculation, without the inconvenience of having to back your speculations with evidence, proof, a prove-able hypothesis etc. then...there are other sites out there full of like-minded people.

If not, I would repeat CMG's question: other than personal attacks on CMG, do you have anything to contribute to the topic of the Angel Light?

Bingo on all counts.

Isn't this a terrahertz device?

The technology to see through walls is well understood. The technology uses something that can be described as spread-spectrum radar.

Electromagentic waves can travel through a wide range of materials depending on their frequency. If you have a wide spectrum of EM waves all aimed in the same direction, then you effectively have a large set of radar devices concurrently operating each one invisible to most but not all materials.

The claim that we can see things like Superman X-Ray vision seems a bit much, I would think it would look a lot like a sonogram, but with enough software you could generate something that looks like the new 4-D ultrasounds you can now get for your fetus.

First post of 2010......
This guy keeps claiming new amazing inventions but also keeps going bust, if his pastes etc are that good then why isn't he patenting them and being sold in shops? I'd buy it if the claims were true.
As for Angel Light has anyone apart from this guy ever seen it working? No video, no photo's no nothing to back his claim, therefore, it's BS.

Lets end this right now.

If he went to all the trouble of having a paper north bay news show shots of his device and him

Dont you think he would show shots of it seeing through the wall. But no there are none WHy?

Because it cant see through walls.

Its a HOAX!!!
