Company changes body scan images to avatar

Many passengers say having themselves scanned to the skinny, in public, is a humiliating invasion of privacy.

Now a software company is coming out with a new technology that will replace your body image with a fake one.

Instead of showing you, the scanner will show an avatar. It will mark any part of that body where it detects something suspicious on you.

It is not clear how soon we might see this technology at the airports.
