Lie-detector glasses offer peek at future of security

Monday, 19 January 2004, 2:13 PM EST

It may not be long before you hear airport security screeners ask, "Do you plan on hijacking this plane?" A U.S. company using technology developed in Israel is pitching a lie detector small enough to fit in the eyeglasses of law enforcement officers, and its inventors say it can tell whether a passenger is a terrorist by analyzing his answer to that simple question in real-time.

The technology, developed by mathematician Amir Lieberman at Nemesysco in Zuran, Israel, for military, insurance claim and law enforcement use, is being repackaged and retargeted for personal and corporate applications by V Entertainment (New York).

"Our products were originally for law enforcement use ó we get all our technology from Nemesys-co ó but we need more development time [for that application]," said Dave Watson, chief operating officer of parent V LLC. "So we decided to come out sooner with consumer versions at CES."
