New Laser Can “Penetrate Clothing” and Figure Out What You Ate for Breakfast


New technology—specifically, a laser-based molecular scanner—will allow the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to know basically everything about you. The technology is 10 million times faster and a million times more sensitive than anything currently available. It’ll “penetrate clothing” and be functional from something like 50 meters away. Soon, the government will be able to tell what you ate for breakfast. Oh, this could be coming to an airport near you in the next year or two. [Gizmodo]
