It seems like the Microsoft Kinect is being used for everything but video gaming these days. The latest innovation brings the Kinect's facial recognition capabilities to a whole new level, one that could also change the way lawyers think about lie detection.
The breakthrough comes courtesy of Japanese researchers from the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo. The team there was able to modify the body-wagging accessory to detect tongue movements, PCWorld reports.
The goal of the project is to help rehabilitate people with speech and swallowing disorders, but the application also spells potential in the field of legal discovery.
