Dear All,
I plan to develop some tablet-based experiments in the field of animal cognition using OpenSesame.
Because of the different modalities of responses different animals can have, I need a tablet with a resistive screen.
Among the tablets suitable for my experiments I chose the Flytouch 7 running with Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich).
Did anybody tried to run OpenSesame on this particular tablet and operant system?
Does it work?
Cheers,
Maxime

    Hi Maxime,

    The Flytouch 7 is a regular ARM-based Android tablet, so it should run OpenSesame. I'm not sure whether anyone has tested this specific device, but it seems that it's a newer version of the EKEN M009S, which is known to work (see list). (EKEN devices are sold under various names.) My experience with the EKEN M009S was not very good, I must say. It was very slow, and the touchscreen and battery life were quite poor. But then again, if you need a resistive touchscreen, it may be exactly what you need.

    Just out of curiosity: What kind of animals are you going to test?

    Cheers!

    Hi Sebastiaan,
    Thanks for your answer. I've got the tablet and Opensesame seems to work perfectly on it.
    I'm testing small birds (Black-capped Chickadee).
    Best regards,
    Maxime

    That's cute. And can I see why you would need a resistive screen for the beaks!
