I have indeed found that using eplorer will allow me to play some of those videos, but after the last explorer upgrade it does not work any more. I have not looked into just why because mostly Chrome is OK for what I do.
Coupling sound tags to touch sensors is nothing new - what I aimed to do here was present an implementation using easily available off the shelf boards and an Android phone. Prior to this I have had to spin my own boards to produce multi-channel touch sensors.
Ross Tsukashima and Ha Le Cao wrote an article for the June 2006 edition of Circuit Cellar which coupled toys to touch sensors and a speech board to help teach children language.
My Arduino and Android code can be downloaded from here:
Thanks for sharing your invention. As it was stated this can be used in so many other applications. I could see it being used in learning toys for children. Ardunio seems to be the duck tape of electronics. Lol. My class uses them for various types of labs, they are great.
This is exactly what the device does already. The touch sensors activate before the control is pushed, allowing the user to select the correct control before operating it. I make this clear at the start of the video.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
