T-Ray Cameras at Canary Wharf

Interesting...looks like terahertz range cameras are in use at Canary Wharf, normally used by astronomers to render stellar dust clouds invisible, they can be applied terrestrially to peer right through clothing, showing up concealed explosives, drugs and weapons (and the subject's naked outline)...all very "Total Recall"...actually today there were about 15 police officers at the foot of the escalator on the tube, apparently randomly stopping and interviewing people, but it's just possible that someone was using T-Ray vision to steer them towards those who looked like they had something to hide...?

Big Brother can see you in the nude...

Never heard of these camera's before, Terahertz sounds like a good band name to me!

Sounds a bit close to Terrahawks to me Kev...Would be a good band name though...!

Well, you can buy the bits for them Ys, but the interferometer alone seems to cost about $15K...probably a bit out of most people's price range... ;)

Dunno about my sarnies, Tommo, can think of some other things worth wrapping up though!
