Scanners that can see through your clothes!

Posted: Monday, April 21, 2008 by Abhishek Krishnan in

Nobody can escape from the millimeter wave scanner. The Transportation Security Administration has announced that it will begin a run of pilot test of millimeter wave scanning technology at Los Angeles International Airport and John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). These scanners enable TSA personnel to see concealed weapons and other items that may be hidden beneath clothes, a thought that will come across as uncomfortable to some folk. The first pilot test began in October at Phoenix Sky-Harbor International Airport last year, and TSA Administrator Kip Hawley has given reassurances that the agency’s main goal is to protect passenger privacy without storing any potentially revealing body scans. It’s their word that ordinary folk like you and I have to trust, so I guess it is time to hit the treadmill unless TSA employees want to throw up their lunch after seeing my six pack rolled into one.


  1. Cool, man

    I will look for the scanner next time around at the airport

  1. Travelers can feel more safe traveling with technology such as this. Great piece of information
