Connectool is a set of tools which help you to document an electronic prototyping session and identify electronic components without distracting you from the task at hand.

Everyday, everyone uses technology. But a lot more people now are starting to build or repair electronics according to their needs using tools like Arduino or Raspberry pi or other simple computers. They all follow a process of prototyping where you build test and repeat your idea.

In 2011 10k Arduino were sold every month. That number went up to 300k per month in 2012. Maker Faire is the biggest show and tell event on earth. There was 165,000 attendees in 2010 and in 2013 it was held in multiple cities with a minimum of 65,000 attendees at each location. Sweden also has something called a repair tax, where in if you repair your electronics the amount of tax you pay goes down. More people will start opening and repairing, they need tools to help them begin identifying components and documentation the process.

Went ahead and built it to a certain degree. here is the code for the circuit gif generator. incomplete. code for being able to use octoparts api and identify components based on what was detected by the identifier. this is the resistor detector (the same one that can be found on

Just trying to make it easier for noobies to get in and starting creating or repairing electronics. This is even before learning how to use the multimeter or maybe this is a future multimeter device that can look up any component you place on it and provide you with a datasheet + youtube videos of how to use it + an octopart search for the particular compnent you placed on the identifier.
