I know what you're thinking, because I thought the same thing, "holy shit, Han Solo in Carbonite!", but no. These are images of people using a 3D scanner that will soon be utilized in airports across the country to ensure you don't have any explosive material in the back of your pants.

The $150,000 contraptions, already tested in 23 U.S. airports, on their way to many more locations soon -- the TSA ordered 150 more of the machines.


According to the New York Daily News, many airline passengers said they were "all for whole body scanners at airports, if it means better flight safety."

Sure, why not? I'm all for better and more efficient screening procedures provided this thing can't tell a dress sock from a penis. I mean, not that it matters because I'm alllllll Gold Toe penis, baby!
