"Department of Homeland Security officials are reporting that researchers are now looking for new ways to analyze airplane passengers at security checkpoints. The project, funded by Homeland Security, takes the focus off explosive shoes and suspicious tweezers and instead determines a passenger's threat level by way of natural physiological signals. These signals include fidgeting, heart rate, eye movement, body temperature, and breathing.
"There's been a large field of research that ties your physical reactions to your mental state, your emotional state," said project manager Robert Burns. "We're looking for those signals that your body gives off naturally." He also added that the technology will be able to pick up on cues that may not be observed by a human, thus providing a handy tool that will enable security to quickly determine the next course of action.
In addition to the tests related to heart rate, body temperature, and other signs, CNN reports that researchers created an improvised fidgeting monitor by incorporating Nintendo's Wii Balance Board.
