Big Brother Taking Over: Airports Now Face Scanning PDF Print E-mail

Next time you walk through the airport doors, garage or sidewalk, you won’t see them. But dozens of electronic eyes will be following every move, especially as you’re finally lined up at security when boarding your flight. And as the technology gets more and more advanced, those all-seeing eyes will not only scan your face and figure.

They’ll also be able to use that new info instantly to merge with stored visual impulses and texts about you. First, of course, is the search of face and/or figure to seek a match of those of known criminals. There’s particular emphasis on images that may have a history of terrorism or members of terrorist organizations.

Those who fit any of the images will be detained for more detailed security examination, and possible arrest. So, senior wanderer, next time you go into an airport, always wear an innocent smile and carry only approved stuff on you and in your baggage.
