With the holiday travel season in full swing, General Electric is making a pitch to the U.S. government with a new airport screening system. GE's security division showed off the system, which it is calling the "checkpoint of the future," through a trial run at San Francisco International Airport a few days before Christmas. Shown here is a prototype of a shoe scanner.

Implications - As social stigma against airplane travel continues to grow, airline companies are taking all the precautionary measures necessary to ensure its customers and the general public that flying is indeed a safe mode of transportation. As such, airlines are investing much more money into security equipment in order to appease those who feel flying is unsafe. Stats for Airport Checkpoint of the Future Trending: Older & Mild
