My friend fell down that elevator shaft in "Unforseen Consequences" and his brain just about melted. An hour later, his real-world balance was still fucked up and he had to go to bed.

I don't know if this was your intention or not, but this may be one of the best unintentional advertisements for the product I've seen in a long while.

For a split second I was thinking this tech would be useful in schools to spot people about to go on a murder spree, but then I remembered that a school would have an ungodly false positive rate. It would be interesting to see if it would be of much use to find people who are being regularly bullied, spot those who are under constant stress in school and reach out to them to provide assistance, long before they go on a murder spree.

Hyper = increased beyond normal range, like hyper-extension (joints) and hyperglycaemic.
Spectral = light emission range.

They are simply using UV or IR imaging (most likely IR, as increased oxygenation in the surface blood will alter the temperature of the skin) and since IR falls outside our typical range of visible light, calling it Hyperspectral imaging is quite correct.

You may be mistaking Spectrum and Spectre here and ending up with a ghost who's ingested too much sugar.

Yeah, I keep saying this too. For comparison: this is my allowance for my mobile with Three (a mobile provider in Ireland). It's called unlimited (but I guess they put in a figure of 2 TB in the field just to put in something. I regularly pass the 50GB mark and never heard a complaint from them.

I can't say for certain it influenced people, but I'm happy to and regularly do recommend my provider to people looking for a good provider. It might be intentional that Three never bother me, because as one of their customers who uses a disproportional amount of data, I act as an ambassador for them. Very recently, during the Steam summer sale, I almost hit 100GB in a month downloading newly bought games. Not a peep out of Three.
