Suggestions, Examples or Patterns for a Touchscreen Radio Button / Binary Control?

NOTE: Yes, I'm aware of the iPhone/iPad controls, but as I said, we can't use those, we don't have multitouch, which I think you need for the on/off control to work properly.
I'm working on a touchscreen application that does not have multitouch. We have a settings page where a user must choose a binary control, a radio button essentially, choosing "on" or "off." I've not been able to find any design patterns for this or really any good examples. I've seen people actually use big radio buttons, but it doesn't seem to translate well. I had two buttons, green for on and red for off with the selected one highlighted, but there's concern that people won't know to press "off" to turn it off.
I know really that testing will tell us what will work of course. But any suggestions here, or examples, would be greatly helpful. I'd like to have 2 or 3 options to test.
