We’re getting there! Those X-ray glasses coveted by comic book-reading kids — see nekkid women! — are almost here. As the video above points out, the Mini-Z X-ray gun [holster not shown] uses the same backscatter technology that outraged Americans who didn’t like the idea of government employees ogling images of the public’s sex organs. Still, there’s utility here. Border guards can X-ray vehicles for drugs quickly and easily, as thousands of undocumented children sidle past. In the future, cops will use the technology to see everything inside your clothes and possessions. Then again, what’s the bet clothing and bag-makers will incorporate X-ray blocking material in their products? Why wait? I’m buying shares in lead apron makers right now. And saving up for my Mini-Z, which is almost as useless as some of the other guns in my collection. Just sayin’ . . .
