New iPhone case detects weapons

"Concealed" carry a thing of the past?

https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/...ice/678075002/

Quote:
Called "Sword," the case works with either Apple's iPhone 8 Plus or Google's Pixel 2 XL and features an array of 18 radio frequency (RF) antennas that, when combined with the company's mobile app, claims to be able to scan people and bags to ensure that there are no hidden weapons. If there is a weapon, the app will tell you what kind it is by matching the weapon's signature to a database Royal Holdings has.
Now not only can you be filmed in public and recorded, but scanned and x-rayed as well.

Pretty soon, automated checkpoints will be able to scan you, determine if you are carrying, run an instant background check, and call the cops if needed. I feel violated just thinking about it.

And the person carrying it will end up with cancer from all of the cell damage caused by constantly scanning emitting 18 different radio waves scanning for weapons that might hurt them in the wrong hands.

Itís a great idea that can be used by law abiding citizens to protect against armed criminals too. I see nothing wrong with this.

There's far too much room for this to be abused (and abused it shall be)

"Sword" will definitely cut both ways.

Don't like it, even with 'the best of intentions' they publicly state. Privacy isn't dead yet, I'd like to hold onto what little bit of it that remains.
