Newark airport unveils new body scan technology

NEWARK, N.J. - Travelers passing through Newark Liberty Airport in New Jersey soon won't have to have their body images displayed when they pass through security checkpoints.

The Transportation Security Administration on Friday unveiled new body scan technology at the airport.

Newark will be the first airport in the New York region to get the new technology. It will be installed in about 40 airports over the next several months.

The TSA said the new scanners will detect potential threat items but will produce a generic, computerized outline of the person's body.

The body imaging machines currently in use have been heavily criticized for showing images of naked bodies.
