Inventor says new underwear will protect from TSA screenings

ERLANGER, KY (CNN) - A Kentucky man is offering airline travelers a way to improve their own security. The patriotic undergarments are for travelers who don't want to expose too much during TSA screenings.

Marc Carey, of Erlanger, created the "Scannershirts." He says they can blur the scanners in certain parts of the wearer's body. The trick is in the ink.

There are two separate styles - boxer briefs and bikini style.

Carey said his goal was to make something attractive to wear that won't interfere with the screening process.

TSA officials say anything that appears to be out of the ordinary could require additional screening.
