A new technology that emits 3mm microwaves may soon eliminate the need for metal detectors at airports. The invention, dubbed Tadar, after the Brazilian Tadarida bat, can create a thermal representation of the scanned item or person. The clothing disappears and anything; change, bombs, guns, toothpaste – you name it – will show up on the scan. Different materials are represented by different colors in the scan. Apparently, the technology is able to scan things from up to 50 meters away.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
