It is this the future of -- security it's a high tech revolving door.
And and it says security system all in one trying to get in.
Two -- keeping.
You know guys with guns from getting -- malls and schools and theaters that company's managing director Robert -- Simon joins us -- we -- little videotape we saw little thing you put together computer graphic.
So are tell us how it would work explaining to us how it's working well -- what -- -- next united.
The thing -- notice about it is.
You can see into that mechanism because we've taken the covers off for the animation so these would be covered.
So that weapons cannot be passed between two attackers that's an important thing OK and down.
The portals in the in the video are all running at the same speed.
And it would work differently in reality these know exactly where each person is each portal unit is robotic.
It would track the pace of the person as they walk through if they go quickly it would move quickly if they walk slowly it would move slowly.
And then at one point.
In the middle of the cycle.
If there's a weapon it'll be detected by at least the metal detector -- the portal would stop.
Give a message to reverse direction the personal would be backed out of the portal.
Oh that's cool so it as the person is in closed it's it's it's a -- And and so it would back the person out or would trap them inside between the two walls.
With with anything like this you'll occasionally have a false alarm you don't -- -- -- people -- -- things -- you -- You would reverse them out the main thing is.
Keep the weapon out of the building -- test certain well here for practical purposes a lot of I -- being used in sports venues and -- How many people can you get through this this mechanism is it.
The real once we -- the prototype will be able to test it with with people going through but.
The ideas he can move as fast -- someone can walk her that was the real challenge the traditional high security portals are very very slow.
And that the reason this looks so different is because it's allowing people to move at a fairly quick pace.
And that was the real challenge because if it couldn't be quick it wouldn't work sure in places like schools where at certain times of day a lot of people come ago.
OK gotcha well it's an interest in idea and I know -- -- next that is to build a prototype right now you're looking for partners to help you what they're Barbara and Robert -- and joining -- today from Seattle thank you very much provocative idea.
I thank you think you.
