I used to watch a lot of daytime TV, and in every show there was always a lie detector test of some sort during the action. Always. It made me desperate to get one so I could find out who really ate the last of the ice cream, but the equipment on the shows were sort of unwieldy, and definitely didn’t match my décor. So imagine my delight when I came across the small Digital USB Polygraph (Lie Detector) Demonstration Kit. It’s the perfect family interrogation unit!
This isn’t some cheap fake dollar app on your iPhone, this kit contains proper sensors that attach to the fingers of your friends and family, which then feed information to the software. Although the use of this product won’t turn you into an FBI agent, it’s not just for show either. You can ask your subject a series of questions and watch as their reactions jump and change on the monitors.Where were you at precisely 3am on the night of the 9th, madam? We found your prints smeared all over the fridge door!
Luckily it comes with an instruction book to help you interpret the readings, so you should be able to avoid locking up the wrong suspect just because you got jam on a microswitch. Just think of the power you’ll have scaring everyone to death with the threat of a polygraph test. You’ll make the NSA look like Mary Poppins. Sadly this is not a professional grade polygraph, so the verdicts won’t stand up in a court of law – rats! – but the tech is still fun. Whether or not it’s $399.95 worth of fun is really up to you.
