DIY Touch-control Tic Tac Toe

 Over time there have been many implementations of the "noughts and crosses"/"tic tac toe" game with various forms of technology. One fascinating version has been created by Instructables user 'origamiwolf' who has used a home-made touch-sensitive panel as the user interface. This results with a game that is controlled in a more natural method by simply touching the board positions. Driven by an Arduino board, the project is simple and also introduces several good concepts with regards to programming, including multiplexing and bitwise arithmetic - so you may learn something as well. To get started, here is the game in action:
