wall stud detector development
I am an Open University design student and I have no software development knowledge. I would like to know if it is possible to modify an existing wall stud detector that uses ultra-wide band radar, so that the received radar waves could be transposed into an image on a screen of what is behind the wall?

I would think, yes. Do I know how, no. Here's a video for a project, you might want to google the names and such to get more info:

Man, that would be fun to have......I'd hide a skeleton made out of tinfoil in a wall just to watch the reaction......

thanks for the idea.

Keep us updated if you pursue anything, this does look really neat.

The benefits are astounding. No more missed studs when drilling...no chance of cutting a wire...bug inspection...you name it.
