Infrared Cameras just might be the newest tool police and others could use to determine whether a person is drunk. Researchers in the UK found that when people are drunk, their noses get very warm while their forheads stay much cooler. In addition, drinking alcohol causes blood vessels to dilate near the skin's surface. They created algorithms that, when combined with infrared cameras, could identify if someone had too much to drink.
