TSA debuts new scanner software – Dr. Gridlock

New software designed to make airport security scanners less intrusive will debut at the Las Vegas airport Tuesday.

Instead of sending a revealing image to be examined in a private security booth, new software will project a non-gender-specific silhouette on a small screen attached to the scanning booth.

If the passenger is carrying any contraband items a red box will appear on the screen. Otherwise it will flash a green okay.
