Reading bluffs might become a much easier process in the near future if MIT’s latest piece of technology finds its way into the mainstream.
After years of development the US based university has created a video filter that is capable of reading minute shifts in a person’s blood flow and heart rate.Known as Eulerian Video Magnification, the technology was first created to monitor a baby’s vital signs but has since been extended to potentially read whether a person is lying or not.By enhancing what the naked eye can’t see, users are able to look at a video and see the colour changes in a person’s face indicating alterations in behaviour. Such a breakthrough could revolutionise police interviews and there are also calls for the technology to be added to Google’s new hi-tech glasses. “People wanted to be able to analyze their opponent during a poker game or blackjack and be able to know whether they’re cheating or not, just by the variation in their heart rate,” project co-author Michael Rubinstein told the New York Times. Indeed, it could be just a matter of time before aspiring grinders are using the software at the table. Keep up to date with all the news from the poker world by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
