TSA p0rn

The Evolution of Security talks about the millimeter wave imaging that is being implemented at Phoenix, Baltimore, LAX and JFK. Interesting points:
  • Facial features will be blurred by the system, as shown above
  • Images are not stored or transmitted
  • The image viewer will be in a separate private room and will communicate with the screening station by radio
As long as it doesn't cause cancer or other health issues, I'm OK with it. I haven't heard anything about health effects, but I am paranoid about such things.
