What kind of batteries work, if at all, with Arduinos: AA, D?
Is it really that advanced? Looking at some similar projects mine seems kind of low end on the difficulty scale.
Depends who you are comparing with. With experts: it is very simple. With me: it is out of my ability. I just use Arduino for fun, because my teacher introduced the Arduino Starter Kit to us. I'm okay at programming. What have you done with Arduino before this? Compared to my classmates with Arduino, I'm the "expert".
If you mean to power the Arduino, 9V battery is good.
Only if you're Mr & Mrs Ever-Ready's favourite offspring.
I don't know if my project is something a beginner should be taking on so if there are any projects anyone can recommend for me to get my feet wet with that would be cool too.
What part of my project would make it that difficult?
I think all the soldering I would need to do would be the button switch
Can anyone let me know if I'm on the right track or is there anything else I might need?
