Backscatter X-Ray Machines and Your Privacy
I've written about backscatter X-ray technology before. It's great for finding hidden weapons on a person, but it's also great for seeing naked images of them. The TSA is piloting this technology in Phoenix, and they're deliberately blurring the images to protect privacy.
Note that the system is being made better by making the resulting images less detailed. Excellent.
