I can't watch the video but several months ago I remember reading an article that detailed various technology they have for evaluating people at places like security checkpoints. In addition to heartbeat it included stuff like pupil dialation, facial recognition and a few other things to help them flag people who might be suspicious. There was also of course controversy about whether it was too invasive, whether it was accurate enough, whether it was profiling and so on. Still, the technology aspect of the article was interesting.

The lin went to a Yahoo page, butt the video was from ABC Nightline, might be available on a different link. Nope - the abc nightline site (http://abcnews.go.com/Nightline/) links back to the Yahoo page.
