Videos not playing

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.

William K -- as for getting the video to work, I've often found that switching to a different browser can make all the difference. Seems like a lame solution, but it works on a lot of instances.

Erratum:

I stated in the video that the XKitz boards use the mTouch technology for their touch sensing. This isn't the case. Custom firmware written by XKitz is used instead.

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:

I would have seen that in the video, except that for whatever reason I could not get the video to play. Sorry about that.

Announcing the button before it is pressed is indeed a very good invention. That should be a benefit to a large segment of uor populace. You have a game changing winner in hand now.

Good idea, Matt. The idea of having an off swtich once the user learns how to use the system makes a lot of sense.

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.

Getting in on Matt's reference (lol), I will have to check out your Arduino book.  It may be something I can use for my class.

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.
