This gadget looks like a box and functions as a Wi-Fi router. According to MIT's technical journal, the low-power radio signal reflects the body of a nearby person and returns that information to the box. The box analyzes the information and provides health data. Even if you are breathing only, record the changes in the electromagnetic field around you and detect your movement.

According to the report, this device is installed in more than 200 families, and it monitors healthy people as well as people with Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, depression and lung diseases.
