Peeling Scotch Tape Emits X-Rays

The article notes that this could result in the creation of a human powered X-Ray machine. A hand-crack that unrolls Scotch Tape in a vacuum. Very interesting. You would need to send it back to be reloaded with tape and re-vacuumed. You may could get extra life out of the device by reversing the direction of the tape in the machine, first the tape all goes one way, then back.

Could be a big boon to third-world doctors and field medics.
