Honolulu International Airport in Hawaii, US, has began use of full-body scanners to detect explosives hidden inside passengers clothes.

Six advanced imaging technology machines, each costing $70,000 and 150,000 will be installed at the airport soon.

The millimeter wave device will scan for metallic and non-metallic threats, including explosives, without any physical contact with the passenger in just five seconds.

The screening image will be monitored in an isolated room by one agent who will communicate wirelessly with other Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents.

If the machine detects anything suspicious, the TSA agents will screen that specific area instead of doing a full physical search, according to kitv.com.
