Security camera can see through clothes

New camera technology for airport securityBefore all you guy’s run out to buy the new Thruvision T5000 you should know it’s not that type of camera .Although it can see through clothes what it doesn’t do is give you the full anatomy picture. So woman don’t worry this security camera won’t revile the things you may be concerned about.

The T5000 can only see through clothes well enough to detect things such as explosives, liquids, weapons and narcotics. These are things we should be concerned with and a camera that can spot them is not a bad thing. Right?

The Thurvision T5000 unlike X-rays doesn’t emit radiation it can only detect it. This camera picks up Terahertz rays, or T-rays that naturally emitted by all objects and can even pass through walls or fabric.

There are some airports that have been using such technology for a while now, but the T5000 is more for open areas like border crossings. In the world we live in, technology Is taking great leaps in security and security cameras and the Thurvision is just newest example of this.

Security Cameras - For Peace Of Mind

Security Cameras of course get a lot of attention in the news when they catch scenes of horrific crime or accidents. But as important as that is we all hope, do what we can to be safe, and play the odds that those things will never happen to us. So then why do people use security cameras at their homes such as seen in this clip of a security camera watching the driveway?

Well for many of us it’s for the little things. Such as peace of mind knowing why your packages always arrived smashed. Or perhaps knowing how that tire mark ended up in your yard. Or in my case, who left that baby stroller by my front door. Beause after all it's the little things that can drive us crazy.
