Truth Wristband Kit, the ultimate geek bling

We'll leave you to decide if this portable lie detector is what you really, really need.

It takes a total geek from out of this world (think the nerds from "Big Bang Theory") to cough up good money (about $45) for this, let alone wear it on a date. If this were April Fool's, we'd have thumbed our noses at it as a gimmicky gag. As it is, we'll leave you to decide if this portable lie detector is what you really, really need.

The literature takes some wading through, specifying this as a wearable device that "dynamically reflects your psycho-emotional response to the world, promoting internal states to be externalized and made into interactive forms of expression."

Personally, I think that if you have to rely on a gizmo that blinks from blue to red "as the wearer becomes aroused" (their words) as a chick magnet, your romantic interlude is history before it even began. That's not all. DIY skills are apparently required to solder together this lie-detecting kit. Watch the vid to test the truth.
