Video shows worthlessness of TSA porno-scanners

Basically, he found that if you hide a metal object on your side, the TSA nude body scanners may not see it.  They didn’t when he snuck something through repeatedly.  Here’s the link to his website as well as an interesting Reddit discussion about the video. Some readers suggested that the TSA could simply ask people to turn and do additional scans, but that is both a health issue as well as a problem for the TSA due to false positives. You may recall the German TV program from 2010 that showed the uselessness of the porno-scanners and now this. This is a very expensive waste for bad technology.
