    One thin that is especially good is that you make no electrical connection to you victim that is patient. So many experiments like this miss that point. If you do make a connection power with a battery. Voting for this.

    I am using a software called Processing, which is a very friendly java based programming language, the code to do this is in step 3. It is commented for better comprehension.
