Soon Eye-Tracking Technology Will Reveal If You're Lying

It seems that The Eagles were on to something when they sang that "there ain't no way to hide your lyin' eyes", because researchers are working on eye-tracking technology which will detect dishonesty better than a traditional polygraph test.

This promising-sounding technology is being researched by some folks at the University of Utah:

The researchers determined that lying requires more work than telling the truth, so they look for indications that the subject is working hard. For example, a person who is being dishonest may have dilated pupils and take longer to read and answer the questions.

Of course, it'll be a little while before this eye-tracking lie-detection system is perfected, so don't start worrying about someone scanning your eyes for fibs during a conversation just yet. [Physorg via Dvice via Neatorama]
