The Voigt-Kampff is a polygraph-like machine which assists in the
testing of an individual to assess whether they are a Replicant or human. It measures bodily functions such
as respiration, blush response, heart rate and eye movement in response to emotionally provocative
questions and / or scenarios. The Voight-Kampff Test is used primarily by Blade Runners.
It usually takes up to 20 to 30 cross-referenced questions to distinguish a
Replicant from a human using this test. However, recent advances have enabled this process
to be reduced to five sets of questions. This set of five questions are designed to elicit an emotional
response as a direct consequence of the answer the subject is asked to provide.
The current V 2 . 5 of the Voigt-Kampff Test is split into three
S e c t i o n 1 : Emotional Response Questions.
S e c t i o n 2 : Emotional Response Scenarios.
S e c t i o n 3 : Logical Response Questions.

The three versions available in the zip file:
Version 2.0 - The original and
definitive version (the Final Cut!). This is a visual basic executable with all the special effects included. Unfortunately,
users running Windows 95/98 or earlier will struggle to use this version due to the library requirements. All modern PC's
will be able to run this and you won't be disappointed.
Version 2.0_Amended - This is the
same as version 2.0 except that some of the special effects have been removed. The core of the program is the same, but in
removing the special effects, the problems encountered by Windows 95/98 users will be removed and they can use the same core
VK as in version 2.0.
Version 2.5 - In order to reach
as many replicants as possible, I thought it prudent to program a version of the VK which isn't based on a visual basic executable.
Therefore, I re-programmed the whole application using VBA within MS Access (which I am assuming most be will be able to access
irrelevant of their version of Windows and/or Office). This uses the same core questions as version 2.0 but with a few other
2.6 - There's nothing new to the
content this just makes the existing version more MS Access 2007 compatible.
