#2045: FlightSuit

Body scanners in airports don’t have a great press. Everyone assumes that they will be used to broadcast images of their less-than olympic physique, for the amusement of the general public.

Today’s invention is to make some positive use of these scans.

Anyone passing through such a machine would have the right to have the imagery sent direct to their tailor or favourite online store.

This would allow the busy jet-setting class to travel informally dressed and have a perfectly fitting suit chosen or made for them by arrival time at their destination.

(Also, are body dimensions currently used as a form of biometric identifier? This would make it much harder to travel on a false passport).
