In cyberspace, everyone knows you’re allowed to fly.

This video, produced by Next Media Animation, lampoons the new TSA x-ray full-body scanners, by using avatars to act out scenarios. But there’s an idea in there — what if the scanners translated your data, and displayed you, instead of as an x-ray, as an avatar? Still as invasive?

And of course if you’re an avatar, then the creative possibilities multiply just like your online identities. Stripping down? How about a little full-body scan burlesque? Augment the festive potential by becoming the Gypsy Rose Lee of the upcoming holiday travel season.
