These all use the Tar Heel Gameplay web-site to create very basic cause and effect switch activities. All you need to do this is to have a YouTube video address and copy it into the "Create a gameplay" utility. Your switch needs to be set to main mouse button, space bar or a specific point on the screen. You can see more of my Tar Heel activities at OneSwitch here.

To find more nice relaxing videos, try searching YouTube with the terms "ASMR", "slow TV" and "relaxation". Check your videos for harsh patterns or flashing if using with anyone with photosensitive epilepsy. Thank you to Herbert Huber for allowing me to back up some of his excellent videos. If for any reason these stop working, there is an alternative PC based system that should work with any video content on or off-line. Just get in touch via OneSwitch.org.uk if interested.
