Whole Body Imaging at the airport
I flew out of Salt Lake City today and they have the new whole body imaging technology at security. They still have the regular metal detectors in most of their lines, they sent me to the line with the new millimeter wave machine when I said I had a pm. They politely answered all my questions then left it up to me if I wanted to walk through it or have the pat down. The scan takes less than two seconds, I was on my way in about ten seconds. Even with the time I spent asking them questions, I was still finished well before my family that was in the regular line.
Does anyone know any more about it? I felt fine going through it and when I just googled it I found more privacy concerns than safety issues. After reading up on it, I think I'll choose it next time also. I can see the potential privacy concerns but it's fast and easy so I'm not going to get too worked up about it. What do you think?
