Lie-Detecting Video Camera

Hassan Ugail took this photo of himself on camera and laptop. Is that vain?

A lie-detecting video camera may be out in a year, and allegedly works 2/3 of the time.

Cool stuff via Crave:¬†Hassan Ugail of Bradford University worked with colleagues at Aberystwyth University and the U.K. Border Agency to develop a camera that picks up on changes in blood flow and expression in a subject’s face when lying.

The system picks up subtle clues such as swollen blood vessels around the eyes, as well as emotional signs linked to lying such as eye movements and heavy breathing. The system combines a commercial video camera (seems any decent one should work), a thermal camera, and most importantly, algorithms to process the data that run on a laptop.
