Here's a quickie from a Reuters article I just read. In South Korea, mobile operator KTF is using some interesting technology as a lie detector. What a great story post-Valentine's day! (Remember this for next year!)
It's called 'Love Detector' and it analyzes voice patterns to see if the person in question is lying or telling the truth.
From the Reuters Article:
The "Love Detector" service from mobile operator KTF uses technology that is supposed to analyze voice patterns to see if a lover is speaking honestly and with affection.
"We created this service because we thought people would want to know what others were feeling about them," said Ahn Hee-jung, a KTF official.
Users who speak by pointing their mobile phones at themselves for video conferences can see a "love meter" bar on the screen of their handset during a conversation.
They later receive an analysis of the conversation delivered through text message that breaks down the amount of affection, surprise, concentration and honesty of the other speaker.
The service costs subscribers a flat fee of 1,500 won ($1.59) a month for unlimited use or can be accessed at 300 won for each call, KTF said.
If you need your phone to tell you if your partner is lying or telling the truth... Perhaps you need a new partner. Or a new phone :P
