One thing for sure, you won't see a lot of celebs walking through this thing.

I bet it can see right through silicon and whatever materials they use in plastic surgery.

Generalizing much? Some of us manly men like their woman to be a little Rubanesque, my friend. I'm not talking like Roseanne Barr tubby, but certainly big girls need love, too. (they just gotta pay). On topic: I don't fly so this doesn't affect me at all, but if they start to utilize this device on other forms of transportation or at entrances to buildings I'll not be happy. As concerned as I would be about some perv checking out my wife, I'd be equally concerned that you'd get pedo's looking for children going through the machine. Privacy is dying about as quickly as capitalism, democracy, and justice in this country. Sad, sad days.

Well I am female and I'll damn well tell them if they are going to see me naked
the least they could do is check and make sure my silicone implants aren't leaking!

Now if they could hire radiologists as security screeners and offer a two for one deal "fly the friendly skies and get a mammogram while you wait" THAT would be a great thing!

Now I am going to have to wear a ten inch strap on when I go through the airport. Just so I am not embarrassed.

You know I actually went through one of these in Chicago I believe. It wasn't required but the line was much faster. The sad thing is I actually went through it sucking in my stomach so as not to appear frumpy! hahahahha

Indeed most people would find this more weird than attractive, but you must keep in mind the amount of strange taboo porn sites there are out there. People like dead things, so Im sure they will love this new form of xrayted imagery lol

No? Not as embarrassing as when you are forced to pull said 10-inch strap-on from your pants in front of everyone.. Or God forbid it becomes dislodged, and it looks like you have a 10-inch log in your pants.......Never know these days, it could be considered a terrorist weapon...

I'd hate to sit next to "mr. talkative" on that flight....

Bahaha. I'm registering the patent.. Any radio opaque substance should work, like a very very small amount of barium mixed in with regular body paint.

You can pretty much make a lot of regular cameras do this..

Cameras are designed to only capture Visible Light, and they use IR Cut Filters to block out all the rest of the light. If you take out the IR Filter on most cameras, and adjust the brightness and contrast a bit, you can turn a regular camera into an infrared camera which can see through clothing. IR light is a smaller wavelength so it passes through clothing easyer than Visible Light.

Here is a website dedicated to it:
www.kaya-optics.com...

Scroll down and look at all the pictures.

The real purpose of this technology is to impress upon the public the idea that the government has the right to view the naked bodies of its citizens. That is to say, your government, under the guise of 'safety,' has the right to strip you of your clothing, your privacy and your self-respect. To put it crudely, the G is now telling us all "I own your ass."

Freedom! Liberty! Freedom AND Liberty! Yeeee-Hawww!!!!

I'm absolutely NOT OK with being X-Ray'd every time I board a plane. I'm an upstanding citizen and yet EVERY single time I get on a plane because of my long hair I suspect (dirty white boy hippie anyone?), I am *RANDOMLY* selected for hands on nuts screening. There's nothing remotely random about it, and I can just see myself winding up sterile because I'm *randomly* selected for X-RAY over and over. For shame Aussies. Fight that please, I don't want it spreading to the USA, we are getting metaphorically raped enough as it is.

This an invasion of privacy.....nothing more and nothing less!!

This is public transport and what we are being presented with is just in reality robbery of the rights of normal human beings.

We should not be held to ransom that if we want to fly then we have to be subjected to this. We dont even know the dangers and if there are any we certainly wont be told about them.

Stand up for your rights because once they are taken they are twice as hard to get back.

Wake up sheeple!!! PLEASE!!!

You mean they will be able to see my adult diaper.
Will if they need the trill.

Under US law looking at a child under 16 with one of these units would that not be child pornography.

I would have to say that if the picture is being posted on this website then it is not that bad. As I was reading through the posts I found myself trying to scroll by that picture rather quickly after seeing it a few times. It's not offensive, it's just strange.

The one point that did seem to stand out above the others is children walking through. No child of mine would be walking through that machine. I would walk through it myself but not my children. So that would put me in the long line.

I see the importance for security. Me personally, I feel safe enough as is. A nice friendly but uncomfortable pat down will do for me. I was going into a club on my military installation a few weeks ago and I would have to say they did a more in dept search than at most airports I got to.

Playing Devils Advocate for a moment..
Would you rather have your kids be patted down (the ol' crotch grab technique)?? Or a Strip Search????

I dunno......I'd almost sort of rather the kids go thru the machine than have them be molested by the TSA.

So, personally, I don't have any issue with this.

I'm not very uptight about my body or someone else seeing me.

For those people that consider this a violation of their rights, there should be another alternative.

I want all the security that I can get before I get on a commercial airline.

I agree that this is ridiculous and an invasion of privacy.

However, I'm not sure that airplanes are 'public transport', as in they are owned and operated for the state, by the state.

To me, they're private enterprises. If someone isn't happy about the invasion of privacy, the simple solution is not to fly.
