Dutch Customs: Scan App

The Dutch customs launched a mobile app for travelers to check what they can bring in and out of the country. The app features an "OK-scan" where users can check their bags in the same way that customs officials do. Every scan results in a different (fake) picture of the inside of a bag, including an item that will raise eyebrows, such as weapons, counterfeit, protected goods and cash. Using another function "Is this ok", travelers can check customs rules on these items.
