Update: There's been quite a bit of press lately over this patent request and privacy issues...where and how it will be used if the patent is granted remains to be seen...this is a tongue and cheek response here that in a humorous way makes a few points...from an observer's standpoint this would be great to have this available to see how presidential candidates do when discussing healthcare, you think?

Government assemblies, like the U.S. Congress. C-SPAN could broadcast different politicians' life signs, so the people democratic could really see where political leaders really stand on new policies. And if the politician's pulse and blood pressure reaches a certain level that indicates lying, the people could give him or her a little electrical shock. Why, Microsoft biometric monitoring on C-SPAN could make for the ultimate in reality TV.
