Ineffectiveness of airport naked scanners

I'm reminded of Austrian professor Werner Gruber's exposé on German TV (from 2010) of just how useless airport naked scanners are as a security measure. Prof Gruber, of the Institute for Experimental Physics in Vienna, manged to hide the components of an incendiary device from the scanner, then promptly went outside and demonstrated, in spectacular fashion, what the scanner had missed.

But be AMAZED be VERY AMAZED at how this WONDERFUL high tech FULL BODY SCANNER WILL PROTECT YOU - The machine did pick up his mobile phone and studio microphone.
