|Final buttons from inside enclosure|
Initially, the system was working, and we were able to film the elephants coming into contact with it for the first time. However, although it was clear they could use the interface and were naturally drawn to explore the surface, the device did not work consistently. It stopped, and needed to be reset a few times, but then when triggered, one of the buttons played continuously before stopping (it is supposed to only play when there is contact with the sensor). I suspect that the large amount of metal in the enclosure is having an effect on the cap sensing.
