Remember when Michael Chertoff’s backscatter x-ray scanners were all the rage (literally)? And the nigh anticipated arrival of the F.A.S.T. (Future Attribute Sensing Technology – whatever that means) machines that would label you as a terrorist by reading your skin temperature and body language? Well get ready for the latest piece of draconian technology from the Department of Homeland Surveillance that will be able to tell everything about you right down to the molecular level. From the dandruff on your shoulder to the particles under your fingernails to the contents of your stomach. All from over 50 meters away!
This modern miracle of fascist technology is brought to you by the friendly folks over at In-Q-Tel. Yes, the same In-Q-Tel that’s been providing surveillance and information gathering gadgets for the CIA for over 13 years!
“Within the next year or two, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will instantly know everything about your body, clothes, and luggage with a new laser-based molecular scanner fired from 164 feet (50 meters) away.
From traces of drugs or gun powder on your clothes to what you had for breakfast to the adrenaline level in your body—agents will be able to get any information they want without even touching you,”
