can you hack a toy to change it's sound & light funtions? Answered

Is there a setup were you can hook up a toy to a computer & change the light & sound effects? I know the chip is small & covered over but a black epoxy, but is there a way  to get to it, touch an exposed wire running out of the chip to download new effect? Is there a substance to melt the curios black cover over the tinny chip?

No those chip on board solutions are not programmable. Even if you remove the plastic blob on top. There is no programming done to them since they are hard wired for their job. If you want to hack a toy you need to completly replace the board inside with one that will perfomr the fuctions you want or can be programmed for it.
