Despite the increasing amount of smart textile design practitioners,the methods and tools commonly available havenot progressed to the same scale. Most smart textile interactiondesigns today rely on detecting changes in resistance.The tools and sensors for this are generally limited to DCvoltage-divider based sensors and multimeters. Furthermore,the textiles and the materials used in smart textile designcan exhibit behaviour making it difficult to identify evensimple interactions using those means. For instance, steelbasedtextiles exhibit intrinsic semiconductive propertiesthat are difficult to identify with current methods. In thispaper, we show an alternative way to measure interactionwith smart textiles. By relying on visualisation known asLissajous-figures and frequency-based signals, we can detecteven subtle and varied forms of interaction with smarttextiles. We also show an approach to measuring frequencybasedsignals and present an Arduino-based system calledTeksig to support this type of textile practice.
