You might have read about a security application where they discern people out of a crowd and image them in real time. China is testing it.

You could have a camera above the lunchroom door that images kids and figures out their health. PE would be ok too.

The theory is that they they get referrals to the nurse.

       Would this be a silent scan or would the daily results be displayed for the lunchroom-bound students to see? Watching Hwan and Chen billowing into the red zone might motivate everyone to avoid the carbs and stay in the green. [+]

       Several years ago, I read of infrared cameras (not sure if NIR or thermal, but I think the former) being tested in an airport security setting for monitoring people's pulse, body temperature (via vasodilation?), etc. for detecting people trying to hide something, as well as sick people. Sounds good to me.
