Tooth-embedded device can tell when you lie through your teeth

Can you truly get away with fibbing? It depends. A bunch of Taipei researchers from National Taiwan University have been experimenting on one such tooth-implanted device that recognizes jaw motion patterns and can eventually be small enough to fit into a cavity or crown.

This sensor potentially has uses in dentistry such as assessing the viability of dental interventions; or it could monitor activities such as teeth grinding at night, or lifestyle-centric ones like smoking, drinking and eating. Wow. Denial just got a whole lot harder.
