More Media Controller Progress

Slow progress on the shoe music media controller.

Arturo attached the FSRs to the second shoe. Some tweaks were made to the position in hopes of getting better readings. Tom recommended placing the sensors inside the shoe, but for now we're sticking with the external approach for now since we have it working on the other shoe.

Wear patterns in the shoe informed sensor placement:

I added a multiplexer to the circuit so that we will be able to get analog readings from all 10 FSRs from a single Arduino.

Also, the wireless serial glitches were fixed by adding delay(10) to the Arduino main loop.
