I am working on my first arduino project. I would like to ask for general suggestions/feasibility and recommendations for components:
I want to have a box with a button, hand crank, speaker and microphone (and arduino). I would like the box to have two functions-- first, I would like the user to be able to push the button and record their voice into the microphone and store the audio file on a computer that the arduino is communicating with wirelessly. Second, I would like the arduino to playback previously recorded audio files (recorded by other users) through the speaker when the hand crank is turned.
Can I do it? Like I said this is my first project so I would just like to ask for some general suggestions as to the best way to approach this and also what components you might recommend? I was looking at this shield on the Internet:
would this be a good fit for my project?http://www.makershed.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=MKSKL3
Also, I would like to ask please- about the memory for storing the audio files, if I can design the project so that the arduino is sending the audio files to be stored on the computer (can I do that?) then will the amount of memory available on the actual arduino be an issue?
Any suggestions/advice or points in the right direction are highly appreciated!! thanks very much!!!
