These stylish undergarments will help you avoid embarrassment when you go through the scanner. Or maybe they will just earn you a huge fine from the TSA...

A Colorado man said he's invented a product that can eliminate concern about privacy in new airport screening body scanners.

Jeff Burke is an inventor and the owner of Rocky Flats Gear, the company that sells specialized underwear. The undergarments have metal inserts that are supposed to protect the wearer's health and privacy.

He claims the underwear protects your body from radiation.

"The object is not to make money but to protect the public, educate people and ultimately see these X-Ray machines put in the dumpster," said Burke.
