I apologize if this has been discussed before. I did a search but it did not return any results. When traveling through GPT
yesterday I encountered a new security screening system, which the TSA
agent I spoke with said was being tested at 5 airports in the US. This system, which is made by GE
is kind of like a phone booth. The passenger steps into it, and it blows puffs of air all over the passenger's body. It is completely automated, and at least at GPT
, all passengers must pass through it. The only thing I can figure out is that it must be a method of "patting" people down without actually touching them. Anyone know anything else about this new technology?
