It's just mislabelled. It is a Rozzer-detection device for the hearing-impaired. FIND.

It's actually called a 'Lie Detector Purchaser Detector'. The vendor can tell if the suspected purchaser is the genuine article at the precise moment when he hands over the two quid and walks off with it.

It works 100% of the time. No word of a lie.

It's waiting for you to use The Voice...

Actually, it was waiting for him to be caught in a lie - around about 1:10 through to about 1:23 or so, that thing starts registering pretty close to the red as he starts trash talking about the device, suggesting a lack of belief in his own words.

Perhaps if the device were to be used at about the same time as the man was asked something personal where he knew he'd have to lie, the results might be different.

As it is, the amber reading on that device at about 1:22 would be enough for me not to trust that man with money from my pocket.

So it's less a lie detector than a "cussing the lie detector" detector?

That's very wise. He'd clearly only spend it on tat like this.

There's a difference between the tone of voice of a cynic, who believes something to be rubbish, and the nervous tone of voice of a man who does not believe in the words he is saying.

I was actually waiting to see if that journo would actually say something, in a normal tone of voice, that he didn't believe - like "My MP is honest" or "I really like myself."

You seem to be mounting a noble defence of this machine... You didn't design it, did you?

Shame, presumably you bought it hoping to finally test the veracity of Shakira's hips.

Please now make a TV show called Orac Jnr.

Because what Blake's 7 was really missing was a Godzooky.

Blakes 7 1/2 men. The rest writes itself.
