Teen's Eagle Scout Project Used In O'Hare Security
from the the-state-of-airport-security dept
Apparently, our current airport security system is so poorly designed that we're leaving it up to teenagers to build the necessary tools. While I do think it's cool to find out that an airport as large as Chicago's O'Hare is willing to use a shoe scanner designed as part of an Eagle Scout project, it does make you wonder why no one had thought to build such a system before. The scanner isn't being used as a final security check - but as something of a "pre-security" check, to let passengers know if it's likely that their shoes will need to be scanned.
