Excercise: Nokia 5500 sensor as Tapping sensor

Program an application that uses the built-in tilt sensor of the Nokia 5500 device as a tapping sensor. When you tap it the phone should say something (text to speech). The application should do the following:

Whe you tap quickly 2 times with your finger on the:
- display glass of the the phone it should say: "yes, I love you, too"
- the back of the phone it should say: "dont do this again"
- the left side (in middle part) of the phone it should say: "I like that"
- the right side of the phone (in middle part) of the phone it should say: "this hurts"

Note: You might have to rehearse a bit to get the speed and strenth of the tapping right.

Note: You need to have at least Python for S60 version 1.4.1 installed on your Nokia 5500 phone to get this to work.
