Video Filter that Detects a Pulse
How long before someone claims he can use this technology to detect nervous people in airports?

@HiTechHiTouch that's precisely why it works - you just select the people without the raised heartrate.
After all who is the only person who isn't afraid of a bomb on a plane? The one with the bomb !
It's also the reason that agencies who rely on hiring psychopaths employ lie detectors.
@curtmack - like the signs on the tube (London's subway) saying "report suspicious behaviour"
Acknowledging the existence of anyone else on the tube is, in itself, suspicious behaviour
Zombies are easily identified at airports, they are the ones with the blank stares endlessly mumbling "remove your shoes and outer coat", "remove all laptops from your luggage".
Fortunately they are a relatively harmless sub-species and do not appear to consume (or employ) brains in any way.
"How long until someone comes up with a way cover up or explain said nervousness?--Perhaps physiological control"
No cover/excuse is needed for those trained/forced in D.I.D and M.P.D.
