Yes. Manually, we are able to shock with a 9 volt battery and two wire clips. We are looking for a way to shock automatically, possibly a program or part that can do this for us.
Unless you place the terminals of the 9 volt battery on your tongue I don't really see how you can 'shock' with just 9 volts. Could you explain how you create the shock?
I should have mentioned what we will be shocking. We are simply using the 9v battery and two wire clips to shock planaria.
use a relay (normally closed). This is a mechanical switch that can be turned on and off electronically. wire up the battery to the relay and program the relay to open. I like to use functions to keep code clean.Now to get the relay to open at specific dates and times, you will want a DS1302 RTC (Real Time Clock) module. Both the RTC and Relay modules are inexpensive (<$10 together). There are lots of example sketches using relays and RTC's so that will help you with programming it.http://www.robotshop.com/en/2-channel-5v-relay-module.htmlhttp://playground.arduino.cc/Main/DS1302RTC
Thinking there is more to this story than the kid is telling us. Wonder why? I found a bunch of Utube videos doing what he suggests. They are using a reverse fed transformer from an wall adapter with the 9 volt battery feeding the low voltage secondary and the primary giving the shocking voltage or firing a neon light.If the OP is still interested, please confirm this.Paul
