People using the internet phone system Skype better not tell any untruths while talking to another person, for the system will soon come equipped with a lie detector.
Skype is all set to offer the KishKish Lie Detector, made by BATM Advanced Communications Ltd, a leading designer and producer of broadband data and telecoms systems, as a premium add-on solution for its customers.
The KishKish Lie Detector is an innovative and unique software product which analyses audio streams over a Skype call in real time and illustrates the stress levels of the other person during the conversation.
Paul Amery, Director of Skype Developer Programme, said that the company was extremely excited about this “really neat application”.
"This is a really neat application, and the kind of thing we want to see more of. The Kishkish team has managed perfectly to integrate this unique application to meet the needs of our clients," he said.
"Lie Detector is the latest in a variety of products in our premium add-on program (Extras for Skype) which greatly enhance the Skype communication experience. Extras are all about helping end users Do More with Skype, and this will certainly encourage it," he added.
Dr. Zvi Marom, CEO of BATM, said that the company was “delighted” to be the ones introducing the “unique software” to Skype, and was looking forward to developing new software based communication applications with it.
"We are delighted to be able to introduce this unique software to Skype’s premium offering and will continue to work closely with them to develop new software based communication applications," Dr Marom said.
The Skype Group was acquired by internet auction portal eBay in October 2005, and has its headquarters in Luxembourg, with offices in London, Tallinn and Prague.
