A device that would’ve allowed passengers to keep their shoes on at airport security has failed. Removing shoes in airport security lines is one of a passenger’s biggest inconveniences, and the ShoeScanner raised hopes of faster, shorter security lines. After repeated tests at Orlando International Airport this year, however, the ShoeScanner “still does not meet standards to ensure detection of explosives,” the TSA said.
Of course, the Scanner was only available to those that could pay the yearly $100 fee to go through a separate line. For the rest of us, it was business as usual in the long line of peasants.
