Title: Button to activate sound help!
Post by: Ronathan on Jan 19, 2014, 11:09 pm
So, i have to do a science fair project that is due pretty soon and i plan on making a glove with buttons on the finger tips that activate a different musical note for each finger.  I want to use an arduino, but i haven't worked much with electronics and never with arduino. I already know my supplies, but i still need help with the coding and wiring. Please help... thanks! :)

Wow, way to put in some effort.
Maybe go on Temboo and download code, then just use the google machine to find schematics for how to hook switches to arduino.

you could also use  conductive thread, connect your thumb to +5v and your other fingers to inputs.

Or of course ground and internal pull-up that would be more convenient i guess but you get the idea, it wil probably need some severe debouncing though.

How did it goo?
Your project sounds way too ambitious, just my own opinion.
However you could manege too pull this off.
If this is your very first project and your first contact with electronics.
Be prepared for some serious time consuming work.

I wish you the best!
