Interesting new handheld device that will permit troops on the ground to know if there is anyone on the other side of up to a 12-inch concrete wall. Betcha it'll read up to 24-inches or more and they downsize it to trick the enemy.
Interesing.

I ran into a lady a few days ago who stated that she has a neighbor who knew a dog..... Anyway, apart from that looonnnggg lead-in, she said the neighbor reported that a device can be made from an average microwave to beam a signal to listen in on conversations just a few doors down from anyone. This same neighbor reported that our lines are tapped on a every day basis w/o us knowing it, and gave an example that when a relative who had defected from Russia years ago went back, the KGB picked him up and knew every thing he'd done in those years of absence from listening to his phone conversations. Is this a looney-tune subject?
Technology is more than just what one learns in Junior High science class. In Peter Wright's autobiography, Spycatcher, he described how the intel community (Of which he was the first Scientist-spy: "Q" in the James Bond books) had many edge-of-the-envelope technologies held out of the general base of knowledge. For years, MI-6 had a technology based on shape that allowed a strangely carved piece of wood to act as a microphone. This technology was held as a military secret. The wooden trophy was sent to the USSR London Ambassador as a trophy for his embassy beating the British in some little challenge contest. After the Ambassador got a clean bill of health from KGB analysts that there were no bugs hidden in it, it sat on his desktop for many years sending his listeners inside information.

Great Britain currently taxes TV set usage, and has mobile TV scanners in trucks that can look into each house and see what is on each set in that house. If a house that pays tax on only two sets has three going, then the homeowner can be arrested and/or forced to pay a fine.
So, your answer is a definite maybe?
No. It's a definite yes. When Terry Kent Reed was running from the Arkansas State police hit squad, because he attempted to be a whistleblower to the Mena scandal, he had a kill switch that completely severed all connection from his home to the outside world, knowing that even a switched-off TV set could act as a microphone if left connected.

Laser beams on window panes can read the audio vibration within the building.

The only people who know what can be used and if it is used are spies and magicians.
