Security Camera That Sees Through Clothes?

Sounds like a great idea to me. Especially when you consider that it doesn’t see details of the persons physique that is being looked at. This new technology, ThruVision T5000, is a camera that picks up Terahertz rays, or T-rays, which are naturally emitted by all objects and can pass through fabric or even walls.

The image actually seen by the scanner is a big blob of light with dark spots on it that can be identified as dangerous objects.

Sounds like a great thing to me. All they need to do is figure out how to mount it to a pair of sunglasses for security people and let them walk around places that need protection. Airports, sports arenas, malls, any place where lots of people gather that would be a tempting target for someone bent on mass mayhem.

Of course, there is huge controversy about it because of people who aren’t smart enough to look beyond the headline.

This is something that really needs to be developed and looked into. Uh, no pun intended.

Just don’t ask my wife about it. She already thinks I tend to lean way to much toward sacrificing too many “civil liberties” for the sake of safety. 😀

    Actually, I way prefer this one to the one that could see all my body parts! :op I don’t mind being safe than sorry, but you know, a little privacy goes a long way. Let me keep my personal shapes, sizes, and um, other things personal. If I’m packin’, you’ll see it with this new whatchamacallit-thingie without having to interfere with any of my lovelies. :oD

    I agree, I wouldn’t want it seeing too much.:) But, last December, near us in Omaha, a guy walked into the mall with a huge gun tucked underneath his hoodie. He took the elevator to the top floor. By the time the doors opened the gun was out and he started firing. He killed several people before killing himself. This long gun was only underneath his hoodie. A device like this could have seen it and those people may be alive now. And how many kids is it that would be alive because of a prevented school shooting?
