Submission + - Full body security scans at Amsterdam airport

Anonymous coward writes: Sciphol airport in Amsterdam in the Netherlands has started using full body security scanners for screening passengers. The scanners use radio waves that penetrate clothing and reflect off the person's skin, which allows the scanner to reconstruct a 3-D image in which concealed objects can be detected. By using radio waves instead of ionizing X-rays, the machine is allegedly quite safe. The measures used to ensure passenger privacy are also interesting: The person's face is made unrecognizable in the images and the security personnel analyzing them are in a separate closed room and never see the passenger in person.
