"It was much too late for an aura detector to be of use, tracing the shining ghosts of movements in and out of that room, even if Miles had brought one."
―Kirilian detectors don't get used successfully[src]

A kirilian detector, also called an aura detector, was a technology in the Vorkosigan Saga that could track recent movements within a room, producing ghost-like images.

Behind the scenesEdit

The technology is named for a real-life photography technique called "Kirilian photography"; the creator of the technique thought it was detecting a kind of life aura.
