One of our surprisingly (or perhaps not) more popular articles is our article about the x-ray vision camera lens that lets you see through clothes (has anyone here actually tried it?)

So we knew that you would all be interested in this announcement from ThruVision about their T5000 T-Ray Security Imaging System which, they claim, allows security personnel to see contraband (such as explosives, liquids, weapons, and such) hidden under clothing – but without allowing one to see identifiable body parts. (Of course, this just became a lot less interesting to some of you.)


According to ThruVision, their new T-Ray t5000 Security Imaging system will be debuted at the Home Office Scientific Development Branch (HOSDB) Exhibition this coming Tuesday and Wednesday. The HOSDB – which is billed as “the UK’s premier showcase for the latest security equipment” – is held annually by the sciences division of the Home Office branch of the British government. This year it is being held near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

According to ThruVision, which was spun out of parent company, the Science and Technology Facility Council Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL), “the T5000 can image both metallic and non-metallic threat objects hidden under clothing on still or moving subjects without revealing any body detail.”

(Yes, we can hear you saying “where’s the fun in that?”)

ThruVision goes on to say that the T5000 is “Compact, rugged, portable, easy-to-use and completely safe” and that, due to its range of up to 25 meters (about 82 feet), because it operates “well beyond the range of traditional X-ray scanning and metal detector systems, the T5000 is designed for the protection of human life and property at key political, business, tourist and economic infrastructure sites,” and at “international airports, public transport facilities, large sporting events, check point control installations and other high-security points of interest.”

“T-rays are a form of low level energy naturally emitted from all materials, including rocks, plants, animals and people. They can pass through smoke, clouds and many solid materials like clothing, and in some cases, even walls. The T5000 passively collects these naturally occurring T-rays and processes them to form images that reveal concealed objects hidden under a person’s clothing without displaying physical body detail and without subjecting them to any of the harmful radiation associated with traditional X-ray security screening,” explains ThruVision.

Said Clive Beattie, CEO of ThruVision, “The ability to see both metallic and non-metallic items on people out to 25m is certainly a key capability that will enhance any comprehensive security system deployment.”
