"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.
>> Israel has introduced a step-on scanner called "MagShoe." It has been installed at Ben-Gurion Airport, and is set up next to the walk-through scanners at the airport. "MagShoe" announces within two seconds whether the shoes of the passenger standing on it contains something unusual, such as metal that might be a knife for a hijacking or a bomb part <<
I can make a cheaper version, for less than $20.
My version sends a minor electrical current through the shoes, "announcing within two seconds" whether the person's wearing normal footwear, or has just had their legs blown off.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
