Word of the Gay: "Fruit Machine"

The "fruit machine" was a device developed in Canada that was supposed to detect homosexuals. It was used in the 50's and 60's by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the military to root out gay men.

So how did this "fruit" machine work?
What were the results?
Did it detect any actual gay people who were willing to admit it?
