Naked Airport Body Scanners

Do Naked Airport Body Scanners Make You Uneasy?

Good news for travelers who want to keep certain parts private — one of the largest airport body scanner makers is going to upgrade the machines to make your body images anonymous, reports Bloomberg.

The graphic images of our body parts will be replaced with generic avatars of a baseball cap-wearing guy. Details aren't clear as to when these updates will be installed and the TSA says it is still in the process of testing.

Would you feel uncomfortable going through these naked body scanners at the airport?

I have done both options, I think I must be flagged as I have gotten patted down or scanned if the option was available at least one way on all of my trips within the last year (I fly frequently). I would rather being patted down but if you are in a rush the scanner is a lot faster.

I don't think any of us should be comfortable. What's wrong with how we have been doing it before. Is this about drugs? Get more freaking dogs then to sniff around. I agree with Frenched. This is a violation of our rights and makes me not want to fly, PERIOD!!!!

I would DEFINITELY be uncomfortable. It's such a violation of privacy.

It makes me uncomfortable because of the stories I have heard aboutpeople getting harrassed and made fun of. Being called out in the airport is NOT my idea of a good flying experience!

Psh I don't care. Why is no one asking the people at the airport if looking at my flabby ass makes THEM uncomfortable? lol
