Galvanic Skin Response

I made some test by using different fabrics for galvanic skin response. Che-Wei Wang has a really good processing sketch and blog post about how to use galvanic skin response with Arduino. So, I used his sketch to test my fabrics.

I am not sure about meanings of results yet, but for now, I am posting my screen shots and names of the fabrics.

    I am very interested in making a good gsr detector/recorder/transducer (i.e. to audible frequency). I used to use the RadioShack model about 20 years ago. I remember it costing less than $10; I am deciding to build one myself.

    Can you say a little more about how you make a circuit that connects to an Arduino?

    thank you,
    John

    HI John,

    All you need to do, get 2 conductive surface (shouldn’t be too small). One of them needs a power from Arduino (+5v). Other one needs a 10k ground and an input to analog part of the Arduino board.

    Hope that helps
