Simple Lie Detector

Here's a simple lie detector that can be built in a few minutes, but can be incredibly useful when you want to know if someone is really telling you the truth. It is not as sophisticated as the ones the professionals use, but it works. It works by measuring skin resistance, which goes down when you lie.... [read more]

Seismic detector

The piezoelectric element of a kitchen gas lighter is used in this simple, yet effective seismic detector. The piezo element must be placed vertically, one end solidly to ground.... [read more]

Static Electricity / Negative Ion Detector

This circuit relies upon the extra high input impedance of a FET, and also demonstrates the gate terminals sensitivity to changes in voltage. The gate terminal here is left open circuit, connected only to the "probe" this being just a few inches of bare copper wire.... [read more]
