New Security Devices at Fla. Airport

New Security Devices at Fla. Airport

Quote:
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - The airport security systems of the future can see through clothes for weapons, sniff a person for explosives and determine what's in a bottle without opening it.

That future has landed at Orlando International Airport, as six prototype security systems will begin operation over the next few days. OIA, one of the world's busiest airports, was chosen in December as the testing ground for next-generation security checkpoint devices.
Quote:
The scanner that can see through clothes leaves nothing to the imagination, and the bomb sniffer also can test for drugs. Both of these systems concern civil liberties advocates that these searches may go too far.
A bit freaky, especially in the hands of the usual idiots, er, uh, suspects.
