Are you healthy enough to pass through airport security?

By Oz_Media ·
Here's a fun one, I just got called to visit a US airport that wants a cooled camera thermal scanning for viruses and flu in travellers.

This is nothing new really, airports have used thermal imaging to sense fever and hot spots in travellers for years, it was a big issue during the SARS and Swine Flu breakouts too.

So, while some opt to wear tinfoil hats to avoid detection from Big Brother, what about simple techynology like thermal scanning. Maybe you are feeling a bit rough and a visit to the airport will tell you if you are realy sick or just a bit hot under the collar. Just think, no more waiting for a doctor's appointment, now you can just visist your local airport at your convenience.

What about early pregnancy detection too?

IN fact yes, it will even detect hot breath as people walk through. Note these are nto normally the large metal detector style sensors that you walk through. I have seen then installed into small scanner boxes joined onto the door frame as you enter the gates area.

A group of guys, all get together and buy air tickets, go in the bathroon and rub one up before going through security, just for a laugh?
Bored or what?
