It is exciting that such an influential publication such as TIME agrees that the Walleye camera is a breakthrough product."

The Walleye camera is based on a patent-pending technology platform that generates high-quality digital images that are readily displayed, stored, analyzed, and transmitted. Instead of visible light, the Walleye camera uses invisible wavelengths called millimeter waves to see into and through objects.

The Walleye Imaging System has applications across a variety of markets. In addition to the consumer (home repair and construction) market, the Walleye camera also has security and medical applications. Walleye Technologies' business model is to partner with leading manufacturing, marketing and sales organizations in the targeted markets. One example of a security application of the Walleye Imaging System is the ability for security personnel to scan bags, packages, and people in a non-invasive manner and without physical contact.
