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.
