It’s not as if there weren’t already enough cameras in the U.K. Now there’s word of an interesting one under development: The camera detects changes in blood flow and expression when a subject is lying. Yikes!

The camera uses a combination of a commercial video camera, a thermal camera, and algorithms to process cues such as eye movement, heavy breathing, and more “subtle” tells such as swollen blood vessels around the eyes.
Ugail says the system can be improved to a 90 percent accuracy, a higher rate than that of polygraphs.
