By tracking joint displacements, their algorithms could pick three out of four liars — a much more useful result for law enforcement. One researcher said “put simply, guilty people fidget more… independent of cultural background, cognitive load and anxiety.” The team thinks it can fine tune it for even better accuracy, so police may one day be squeezing perps into skin-tight suits rather than finger sensors.
