    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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7SrDGVakwY

    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. (y)

    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.

    :)
