Toronto: With full body searches becoming the norm at airports amid terror threats, a Canadian engineer has invented a three-dimensional scanner that doesn’t violate passengers’ privacy.
The new 3D scanner developed by Montreal-based William Awad highlights metal or organic material on a human body without showing the body outline under clothing, according to reports.
But the current scanners at airports produce a three-dimensional outline of the human body, raising a hue and cry over privacy violations.
The new machine will address these privacy fears in the wake of the newly introduced physical searches and pat-downs at North American and European airports after the aborted bombing of a US airliner at Detroit on Christmas day by a Nigerian man linked to al-Qaeda.
