Travellers protect dignity with sticky rubber pasties

Airport scanners, which are used for airline security, have been criticised by travellers for being intrusive and making them feel naked and strip searched.

An LA-based company, Flying Pasties, has come up with a solution by providing sticky rubber “pasties” to passengers’ private parts to spare their blushes.

According to Rex Features: “The stickers beam electromagnetic waves on to passengers while they stand in a booth. A virtual three-dimensional image is then created from the reflected energy.”

    Lol. A problem created by America, solved by Americans. Genius. Although I wonder if they were influenced by Melton Mowbry.

    When do they come out with the versions made out of C4?

    It is to the point that I have half thought to strip completely naked at the security screening check point.
