Lie detectors for cellphones
This polygraph can analyze a speaker's mental state, indicating whether a person tells the truth, tries to "outsmart" you, is "highly" excited or just telling plain lies!
The Truster plugs into a phone - cellular or land-line - or a TV and can spot deceivers, even if they speak a foreign language. It is claimed to be 85% accurate and displays results by means of an apple icon. If the person is telling the truth, a whole apple appears on the screen, if s/he is evasive, the apple looks half-eaten.

A Korean wireless service provider KTF, did even better with a voice analysis service that detects emotions in a speaker's voice. You install the program on your cellphone, select an option such as "when you think you are in love," "for beginner lovers," or "friendship test." You call the guy who seems to be keen on you and later look at an analysis of his feelings.
