The ISRAEL21c video on airport security device MagShoe has hit over 300,000 views on YouTube and the figures continue to rise.
The story by reporter Molly Livingstone, about a walk on metal detector created by IDO Security to replace the annoying shoe scans in many airports around the world, was put up on our site in December 2008, and has since attracted 305, 809 views.
The MagShoe scans the whole foot and lower leg for metal devices enabling airport travelers to keep their shoes on. The quick and easy to use device has been in use in airports all over the world for the last five years, and it can also be found at courts, cruise lines, in government agencies, and shopping malls – anywhere that you might need a walk through metal detector.
Israel excels in security devices, and MagShoe was created as a response to increased security concerns in the wake of September 11th. The company is now headquartered in the US, with R&D in Israel. Manufacturing takes place at a factory in Rishon Lezion in Israel.
