Innovation is alive and well in the United States of America.

A Colorado businessman has been both farseeing and ingenious, anticipating the coming backlash from American travelers against the TSA‘s invasive full body scanners as far back as January.

Jeff Buske of Larkspur Colorado began developing x-ray resistant bras and briefs earlier this year. He began retailing the x-ray proof undergarments in March of this year, and sales have been brisk. Story details can be found at:

“You shouldn’t have to be digitally strip-searched or doused with radiation to visit your grandmother,” Buske, a 52-year-old electrical engineer, said by phone Monday from New Jersey, where he was trying to find facilities to manufacture more of his undergarments.

Buske hit upon the idea in January after authorities said a Nigerian air passenger unsuccessfully tried to detonate a bomb in his underpants. That led the TSA to speed its deployment of full-body imaging machines across the country. Buske anticipated an inevitable backlash.
