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.
