SafeScout 360Looks like US airports are about to get a taste of those total-body scanners we last saw in London's Heathrow. Fortunately (we think!), instead of using retina boiling X-Rays, a company called SafeView will take advantage of that Milimeter Wave technology we told you about earlier in the year allowing for a full 3D view of everything (yes everything) concealed 'neath your duds. Now don't fret Doris, the technology also allows your happy-places to be blurred keeping you safe from ogling, bored security pervs. The scan takes about 1.5 seconds and requires you to stand still inside a chamber like that pictured to the right. While the technology is said to replace pat-downs, it can not see inside your, uh, cavities so you've still got that going for ya thrill seekers.
