Lie Detector

A simple and easy to make lie detector circuit. (August 3, 2009)


Simple Lie Detector. This circuit is a basic two transistor direct-coupled oscillator with a frequency determined by the capacitor and the resistance of the skin.


According to the theory; the lie detector, also called "polygraph"1, can detect changes in the resistance of the human body. Is supposed that when someone lies, the resistance of the body is lower because the sweat and other factors. So the change in the frequency of the sound will indicate it.


Here is a video about this kind of lie detector:



With a simple modification, this circuit can be used as a simple two-transistor led flasher.


1 This one is not a Polygraph. The Polygraph measures and records several physiological responses such as blood pressure, pulse, respiration, breathing rhythms, body temperature and skin conductivity. This 'lie detector' only 'measures' the resistance of the skin.
