The device allows defining the contents of cargo in the neighbouring cars. According to Forbes, one of the American companies sold the government 500 such vehicles. The developers say the rays are practically harmless and not dangerous for humans.

The EU intends to lift the ban for transporting liquids aboard aircrafts, and also unify security rules in European airports. 

The former is expected to be done before end April 2013. The time is needed to install special scanners, able to detect liquid explosives, in the EU member countries airports.

Currently a passenger can take aboard only liquids, bought in duty free zone of any EU country, the USA, Canada, Singapore, and Croatia.

The restrictions were introduced in August 2006, after several prevented attacks. Terrorists, arrested by London police, intended to carry liquid explosives aboard.

Ban was also introduced in the EU countries, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland in November 2006; must have been expired in April 2010, but was extended to 2013.

Alcohol, mineral water, lotions, perfume, gels, liquid shaving foam, deodorants, toothpaste fall under the ban.
