TSA debuts new full-body scanners
VIDEO | By Anna Uhls/The Washington Post
New airport security scanners designed to be less intrusive than machines that captured near-naked images will debut at the Las Vegas airport Tuesday.
They'll look just like the controversial scanners that were introduced last fall, but 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 booth.
If the passenger is carrying any contraband items a red box will appear on the screen. Otherwise it will flash a green okay.
