Abstract  

            The Motion Activated CD Player (MACDP) was designed for students with physical disabilities that prevent them from using their hands or fingers to activate switches and press buttons for the snoezelen room at Shore Educational Collaborative. Some students at Shore Education collaborative are unable to control their hand movements. Using MACDP, these students activated the device with the use of their feet; by kicking their feet towards the device. The MACDP will satisfy the handicap children’s need for listening to music without having a parent, guardian, or a teacher assisting them. The core of MACDP is a GP2D15 motion censor chip. The chip is connected by circuitry to the play/pause button on the CD player. The chip emits a continuous signal that when interrupted causes the CD player’s play/pause button to trip.
