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.
Earlier this year paralyzed IndyCar drive Sam Schmidt did the seemingly impossible -- opening the qualifying rounds at Indy by driving a modified Corvette C7 Stingray around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Wearables are changing the way we see ourselves. With onboard sensors that have access to our bodies, we are starting to know our physical selves like never before, quantifying our activity, our heart rate, breathing, and even our muscle effort.
Last week, the bill for reforming chemical regulation, the TSCA Modernization Act of 2015, passed the House. If it or a similar bill becomes law, the effects on cost and availability of adhesives and plastics incorporating these substances are not yet clear.
This year, Design News is getting a head start on the Fourth of July celebration. In honor of our country and its legacy of engineering innovation -- in all of its forms -- we are taking you on an alphabetical tour through all 50 states to showcase interesting engineering breakthroughs and historically significant events.
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.
