Screening for explosives with the Dorkbot
C|Net News reports on a new screening apparatus that GE installed at SFO a few days before Christmas. It’s even got a built in smelly sock sensor to embarass even the most hardened traveller. I mean gimme a break, one twat of a terrorist TRIES to but a bomb in his shoes and we all have to suffer. God forbid anyone tries to sneak on a plane with a jock-strap made of C4.
With the holiday travel season in full swing, General Electric is making a pitch to the U.S. government with a new airport screening system. GE’s security division showed off the system, which it is calling the “checkpoint of the future,” through a trial run at San Francisco International Airport a few days before Christmas. Shown here is a prototype of a shoe scanner.
