Creepy! I can't quite decide if that's a good thing or not.

It doesn't appear like it sees just anything "under the clothing" but rather metalic objects and such (ah hah ! So THAT'S where you put that ring LOL).
Oh, i know. But it's still creepy they anyone walking around with a camera could see just what you've got in your pockets.

You do know that the antique camera I pictured is not THE camera, right ? :-) The machinery might be a little bit greater in size (couldn't find a picture in the article)
Yes, but as with all technology, it will get smaller over time. And eventually, if interest develops in it, at some point it could get to a size that the person right next to you on the street may be able to see who's got what in their pockets.

Well, then we all just line our pockets with aluminum foil, right ? :-)
Depends...are T-Rays part of the electromagnetic spectrum?
Goodhart (author)  Weissensteinburg9 years ago
The technology works on the basis that all people and objects emit low levels of electromagnetic radiation. Terahertz rays lie somewhere between infrared and microwaves on the electromagnetic spectrum and travel through clouds and walls.

Hmm, lead maybe ? :-)
