OK, so after buying this Arduino kit I've had a look at a few tutorials. I'm confident I can copy a pre-made code, but I don't know enough to write my own. I have two projects I would like to do. Can anyone help me with them:
1 - I have a large barrel (diameter approx 600mm, approx 1500mm high). I want to cut some slots in it (probably 3-5), so that when swords are inserted into the slots it makes a platform inside raise through a hole in the top. Kind of like a large pop up pirate.
2 - I simply want a mag lock which is activated by a specific phrase. This has to be very accurate, as I do not want it opening accidentally.
Do these sound feasible? Any help would be much appreciated.
