There was an alternative, and now they are going to use it.

    Back when they first started using nudie scanners at airports folks had a fit. As well they should have. the nudie scanners are being upgraded to be less annoying. Instead of showing a nude figure, they will show any anomalies against a drawing. It is a cheap upgrade and makes the whole thing a lot less upsetting for everyone, including the TSA people who have to see all those really fat naked bodies.

    That doesn't matter because you're still being microwaved.

    "A red box..???" Several million dollars of sophisticated imaging and they get a stick figure and a red box? Let's guess what happens next.. Red box shows up -- the full nudie image is available to see what's in the red box.. Guaranteed -- it's a feature. Crotch jewelry is usually on the better looking folks anyway. I hope. :eek:

    However, if the machine doesn't the know the sex of the person, a crafty jihadist with some art skills could augment a female with an "addadicktome" and some gonads with plastique explosive -- no prob.. Or add some breasticles to a male.

    You will miss MORE weapons by relying on the machine, than the cost savings of the machine is worth.

    If I've blown out some Secret Report to the TSA -- Sorry.. And you guys owe me $20K for the 5min design review..
