The ‘Buy It Now’ price for a Rapiscan backscatter machine, just like they used to use at TSA checkpoints, is $7995.
Just what you need to add realism to the airport security play set (which a reader generously gave me for Christmas in 2005).
These are government surplus, and I love this line from the description:
As you know with most government agencies, when they get a new grant, they have to justify the grant by buying new equipment, leaving good equipment for surplus
I do not think that’s what happened in this case.
