Car detects heartbeat?

2007volvo_s80_pcc_key.jpgI’m still April Fool’s paranoid and can’t believe this isn’t a joke. But Volvo isn’t a company that jokes around.

The TV commerial opens with a woman approaching her car in a darkened and deserted parking lot. She looks down at her key fob and sees blinking lights; the car has detected a heartbeat IN THE CAR!! This has the makings of a high-tech ghost story.

The Volvo site indicates that it’s the real deal. Not only would this detect an intruder but also a dog or child left behind while you are busy talking on the phone.

Does it work? Who knows? My experience with heart rate monitors involves strapping a sensor around my chest and wearing a watch/heart rate monitor. When I run under the power lines near White Hill School my heart rate mysteriously triples. What would happen with my Volvo?
