New Lie-Detector Test by British Scientists - 70% Effective
This could be a great breakthrough, from what is explained here in the article, TSA in the US is exploring a few similar technologies. The fact it is only claiming a 70% success rate actually adds to the studies credibility. People that claim 90% success with traditional lie detector systems, always have a hard time explaining that the vast majority of Courts in the World will not except them in any way.
But this technique as briefly described, is the direction most scientific research is going. It looks like it is taking in the micro expressions developed at I think Princeton Uni. and used by the US Secret Service, and the thermal information is also a patented accepted technique. It would be a good move to follow this project, and funding should not be a problem.
