Although I am extremely sick of the obessesive airport security measures, I actually think this is a swell idea. Maybe the name 'Tunnel of Truth' makes it sound cool and geeky. The Transportation Security Administration is exploring a way to take advantage of people waiting in long airport lines by incorporating a virtual patdown. Susan Hallowell, the Director of Transportation Security Laboratory suggested a design where airline passengers no longer have to take their shoes off after standing in a long line at airport security checkpoints by combining the line with an array of sensors resulting into what she calls a “tunnel of truth.”
