It might not be a problem in Texas, but in the Socialist Repulik of Kahlifornia, we're screwed. Next thing you know, any gun that has a long barrel will automatically be classified as a .50 cal, and licenses for .22 will be restrictive license issues.

I doubt it could see my all plastic knife, even though it lives at home. It's one of those new "krayton" or something ones. :cool:

Terahertz imaging still has a long way to go before it can be used to detect explosives or concealed firearms. This field is still relatively new compared to NIR, thermal (long wave IR), X-ray, and visible light imaging.

:confused: How did you come to this conclusion from a camera that can see hidden objects?

i think the technology is interesting. i wonder how sensitive it would be for objects hidden in shoes, since the "backdrop" of the floor might emit the same level of black body radiation as the contraband.

Good, will it also see my permit?

Carry your pistol in a lead-lined day-planner case ;)

I guess I won't be able to exaggerate about the size of my weapon anymore!:D

EXACTLY! Very soon we're gonna have a flood of people being rushed and shoved into the ground only to later find out they have permits.

And we all know Kali's solution to this problem will be to ban concealed weapons period, therefor eliminating the possibility of wrongful arrests!

You see that amazing logic I just came up with? I should be a politician.

Yawn.

Old news. 10+ year old technology whose price has just dropped a bit.

There's high-res thermal imaging that can do similar things.

Well, since this thing can see concealed weapons, what's the point?

I know, WE SHOULD JUST HAVE OPEN CARRY! ;)

IS this you ?

The selected location is:
Latitude/Longitude 37.7851°N, 122.4010°W ( 37°, 47', 6.5" N; 122°, 24', 3.6" W )
The legal description is: California, Mt. Diablo Meridian T2S,R5W,sec3
UTM zone 10 (X,Y) 552744 , 4182145

The elevation is 32 m ( 106 ft )
The gradient is: 3.4 percent
The aspect direction is: 328.3 degrees or NW
The local roughness is: 2.8 or average
The location as decimal degrees (X,Y;Z) = -122.4010, 37.7851; 32 m

here is the site that provides this info

Hehe.. Yeah, come down and see me! Those are the coordinates for the front door of the Gold Club.

Back to the thread at hand though I don't see what the big deal is. More than likely those cameras are going to be installed in places where weapons, concealed or not, are not permitted like airports, courthouses, and prisons.

It has to construct a three dimensional view, and would need to have a specified flooring material. This is old pattern recognition technology in a new package.

Slick website, though.
