Default New tool to find short capacitors on motherboards : shorty with display

Hi everyone,

I would like to share a project I made recently : I adapted a shorty device and added a display.
it becomes a 0.1mΩ meter with surprising stability.
the original shorty project is here :
I did one showed here ( and was pleased with its performances, but it lack a display.

here is a video showing the measuring of some small values resistors :

here another video showing continuous resistance measuring along a soldier roller :

and last another video showing how to find a shorted capacitor on a 820-00165 macbook air motherboard.
fast and easy.

I'm cleaning the schematic and sources, and will share it when it's ready.
