British Security Camera "Sees" Under Clothes

The British company Thruvision has announced the T5000 Security Imaging System, a camera that can "see" under clothes using what the company calls "passive imaging technology" to identify objects by the natural electromagnetic rays that they emit.

The T5000 camera, created by a company called ThruVision, uses what it calls "passive imaging technology" to identify objects by the natural electromagnetic rays--known as Terahertz or T-rays--that they emit.

The high-powered camera can detect hidden objects from up to 80 feet away and is effective even when people are moving. It does not reveal physical body details and the screening is harmless, the company says.

The technology, which has military and civilian applications and could be used in crowded airports, shopping malls or sporting events, will be unveiled at a scientific development exhibition sponsored by Britain's Home Office on Wednesday and Thursday.

It makes one wonder if they will extend use of this to the outdoors, since this is Britain after all, and they already have extensive camera monitoring in London.

Cool!! I want to see how that works, as I've never heard of T-rays. They ought to start using that in airports right away, since people are being morons about those cool new scanner things. I don't know about you, but I like the idea of getting on a plane and knowing no one has a bomb or other weapon.

This is truly a great prodcut. It can help big time with shoplifting as well. We use to have a few stores on Melrose Avenue in hollywood...And I can't even put into words how many individuals tried to steal our goods! >_<...This is probably going to cost an arm and a leg though...But definitely some very cool tech.

Wow that was quick.  I just read an article on something about a new material to make chips out of that could theretically operate into the Terahertz range.  I was just a quick little mention about it but doubt that this exists yet.

 But ideal in the thing I saw it was suppose to be used for the same things at first then move down to every day computer components, probably like 10-15 years out of course.

i read some where that they where gonna bring this to the united states for use in airports but people got upset because it can see through there clothes so now they are working on blurring out certain areas when it scans

That's the portal scanner things they're experimenting with now. Not the above mentioned camera, which only sees foreign objects, not body parts, by its very nature. That makes this much harder for the whiners to complain about, because then it would just sound like they want to sneak illegal things around.

I'd want the consumer version that see's through clothes and reveals details.  IE: Xray specs for female form viewing.

Thats what I was thinking, lol. You sparked my hope of fulfilling my long lost dream of X-ray vision and then shattered it by saying "It does not reveal physical body details". I wonder if it is similar to the new systems at the airport that actually do reveal exactly what the person looks like, but use software to censor the images so the pervs working the machines don't get too excited.

Yeah if they didn't do that they'd need a splatter shield and some tissue paper back there.
