Whats your thought's on these.? i think they are a damn good way to make air travel safer & thats clear (Sorry bout the pun)
but knowing they can see peoples "Ahum Private parts" is a little too personal.? As the images show!

in a joke shop for 6d
Look through this right through clothing it said on the box- as i recall it gave the user a black eye.

frequent fliers are going to get a lot of radiation.

lots of laughs for the xray operators.

but how else do you combat internal bombs

"as i recall it gave the user a black eye."
I would think that this one will also give the users a few black eyes too!

Seems like a good step forward in security to me. Anything which speeds up security checks at airports has to be good....well, within reason!

What a great job for a voyeur!

I think after seeing the first 10,000 images, any novelty factor will wear off for the operator.

oresome maybe not! if a leggy blonde walked past & you know you can see her as good as naked or any high profile people (even they would have to use it) im sure there is going to be intrest in seeing them go through! i wonder where we stand with politicians.? they make the rules & would they feel happy revealing all.? also what about the female celebs/mp's.? is it double standards again.?

While seeing an individual, in such a manner on the screen, might be stimulating.

Watching a couple of thousand is more likely to be downright boring.

Good idea if it improves security AND speeds our progress through the terminal.

I am already microwaved continuously by radiation, a little more won't alter the level of mysuntan.

I imagine that anyone who may find themselves aroused by such imagery will already have access to enough internet porn to bore the pants off Cassanova. (oops... bad choice of words)
