Bring the TSA Home with This Handheld Scanner

The TSA has gotten a lot of flak from frequent flyers because of their full-body scanners and questionable pat-down searches. Now, you can help others enjoy the same level of discomfort and invasion of privacy wherever you go with this DIY handheld body scanner.

Designer Jeri Ellsworth built her own version of the TSA X-Ray scanner out of inexpensive parts. Cute idea, but the images are, to be honest, piss poor. No self-respecting TSA employee would want to use it when he can get a high resolution image of a stranger's genitals at work.
