The glowing irradiated inside of an Apple MacBook, as photographed by the curious Jason de Villa… as seen by the TSA every day!

About a week ago, I was in the mood to do something crazy – anything to help pull myself out of the blue funk I had fallen into. I texted my brother the vet to ask if he had an x-ray machine in his office, and what size his film plates were. I told him that I wanted to try and x-ray my laptop, something that had been on my mind ever since I saw an x-ray of an Apple Titanium PowerBook. He said “No problem,” and two days later I was sitting in his office waiting for him to finish minor surgery on a dog.

When he was done and had washed up, he led me to the x-ray machine, asked me to place the laptop on the plate, and signaled for me to step away from the machine. A couple of seconds later the x-ray was done, and after 15 minutes his assistant handed me the developed film. I scanned the developed plate and enhanced the brightness and contrast, and made low-res copies of the file.
