Millimeter Wave Scanning Technology

I could still remember the flashy gadgets being exhibited in James Bond films . Those incredible piece of technology that is almost , in a laymans point of view , impossible and unrealistic . I know everyone got envy with the see-through eyeglass that could see whats underneath those thick clothes of anyone . Now , that technology is turning into reality with the advent of Millimeter Wave Scanning .

Millimeter wave technology is a form of whole body imaging technology that could allow security screeners to peer beneath a passenger's clothing to detect concealed weapons. Right now , it is being used in selected airports for added security . Despite of the significance of this technology especially on battle against terrorism , the old question on privacy is still in place . In the end , the principle of utilitarianism , seems to be followed . That as long as it is for the benefit of the many , then it is morally right .
