Nude Avatar for Airline Screenings Begins Testing by Transportation Security Administration (TSA)
After many months of protests from the U.S. airline traveling public, it appears that the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has come up with Advanced Imaging Technology (AIT) software that doesn’t create an image of our genitals while doing airline security screenings.
This software, when it encounters a potential threat, produces a nude avatar rather than a graphic nude depiction of every individual. Furthermore, if there is no threat, a simple blank green screen is produced that proclaims “OK”.
If the initial tests are successful, then all the privacy concerns go out the door and those TSA security screeners peeking at our genitals behind closed doors can stop the intrusion.
The software will be tested at Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS) starting yesterday, February 1, and at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International (ATL) and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) in the very near future.
This appears to be a far more logical solution to everyone’s privacy concerns.
