T-ray scanner: your ‘nads are safe … we think

Imagine a trip to the airport without having to slip off your shoes.A scanner using T-rays, a harmless form of electromagnetic radiation, could make that possible, researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory said on Tuesday.

“At airports we have to take off our shoes,” Ulrich Welp of Argonne’s Materials Science Division said in a telephone interview. “It is kind of a nuisance.”

Using T-rays, it would be possible to examine travelers’ shoes without the need to disrobe, he said. (link)
