New scanner may replace metal detectors

WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal government will begin testing a body-scanning machine that could eventually be used instead of the metal detectors passengers walk through at airports.

Tests were scheduled to begin Thursday at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport with passengers pulled out of the security line for secondary screening. Passengers may request the full-body scan – which blurs faces so the person being screened cannot be recognized – instead of the traditional pat-down used across the country. The new machine uses radio waves to detect foreign objects.

I saw these on the Discovery Channel. I’ll take the pat-down.
