Airports are Testing a Scanner to Let Your Water Bottle Through Security
Throwing away a new bottle of water is a common sight at airport security, but a scanner that can tell the difference between a latte and a liquid explosive could put an end to that. The Insight100 Liquid Explosive Detection System has been considered a potential solution to screening liquids at airports for several years, but has now moved a step closer to implementation: The scanner is being tested at 65 airports in Europe. To get through airports faster and to save money on checked bag fees, travelers are often told to only bring a carry-on. However, even light packers can find it difficult to avoid bringing a full-sized shampoo.
