"This innovation brings enormous logistical value as it significantly cuts down the discomfort and delays associated with standard shoe searches," said Nissim Ben-Ezra, security technologies manager for Israel's Airports Authority.
But he said MagShoe must be used in conjunction with other precautions, especially as it would not spot hidden explosives -- a major concern after the botched 2001 "shoe bombing" by al Qaeda sympathizer Richard Reid aboard a Paris-Miami flight.Of course, the Israelis, always at the forefront of security technology, for obvious reasons, are working on a "bomb sniffing" version of "MagShoe." Let's just hope they can make it differentiate between bombs and just plain bad foot odor.
