    See through clothes scanner gets outing at Heathrow Airport

    A new Passenger screening x-ray machine at Heathrow airport sees
    through passengers' clothes. The machine X-rays through clothing and
    creates an anatomically correct image of the person, revealing any
    concealed object under clothes.

    Heathrow, which for security reasons declined to say how the new X-
    ray machine improves on current scanners, denies the machines could
    cause embarrassment. "It's a very low dose X-ray, the images are not
    stored, it's same sex operated and the operator that sees the image
    will not see the person," said the airport spokeswoman.

    According to InfoWorld TechWatch, new scanners using a technology
    developed at the U.S. DOE's Pacific Northwest National Lab are about
    to appear at airports. The scanning process lasts only 1.5 second
    and produces on a computer screen a holographic image of the
    individual's body and any objects he or she is hiding. But don't be
    afraid: there is a privacy mode, which can blur some parts of your
    body, such as your chest or rear. These scanners will be deployed
    not only in airports, but also in prisons, military caps and at
    vorder crossings.

    The SafeScout portal looks like a small revolving door, minus the
    actual doors. Inside there are speakers and video cameras, allowing
    security personnel to communicate with the individual from a remote
    location. That was the 1.5-second scan. A second later, a
    holographic image of the individual's body and any objects he or she
    is hiding appears on a computer screen.
