Privacy underwear for full body scanners

(WFLX) - A lot of passengers say the full body scans go too far and violate their privacy. But a Colorado man says he has invented a product that can eliminate that concern if you're concerned about jeopardizing your health or having TSA get a glimpse of your private parts.

This specialized underwear comes in all shapes and sizes. For example, the pads, made of metals, can be placed inside a bra or for the guys, the fig leaf design has the same flexible properties.

It's airport scanners that led to the creation of Rocky Flats Gear. Inventor Jeff Buske, of Larkspur, was in New Jersey on business and happy to promote his product. "It's machine washable, lead free, easy to apply to a garment," he explained.

Buske insists his product is not about politics, but all about protecting the health of your body from radiation. "The object is not to make money, but to protect the public, educate people and ultimately see these X-ray machines put in the dumpster."

TSA's response to this new product: No comment. Even though, the inventor sent them some samples.

TSA also says the backscatter machines, emitting radiation, have been evaluated for safety by the federal government and Johns Hopkins University. As for the pat down, TSA says, they take as little as 10 seconds.
