The Reset Button

the latest accomplishment on my circuit bending journey was making a reset button on a texas instruments touch and tell toy. a reset button allows me to flip a switch instead of taking out the batteries when the toy “crashes” and the audio locks up. i basically cannibalized an AFC switch from an old sears radio, and re-purposed it on the touch and tell. had a minor scare when a wire came loose during the exchange, but i had the schematics from a printout and was able to re-attach it correctly.
