Skype to provide lie detectors to users

For those who don't know, Skype is a service that allows you to make free 'computer to computer calls' and cheap 'computer to phone calls'.
Besides this, Skype also lets you make video calls among other features.

And now, Skype is going to offer the KishKish lie detector as an add-on for its users.

The KishKish lie detector checks the audio streams of the other person in real time. It then displays the person's stress levels to the Skype user.
Other than performing real time analysis, the calls can also be recorded for lie detection later.
The voice mail and call recorder are the other Skype products designed by KishKish.

This certainly seems like an interesting feature but not a promising one. I wonder how are the users going to gain(or loose) from the lie detector? Only time will tell.
