I am a 3rd year Interactive Media Design student at the University of Dundee, Scotland. I am currently exploring the possibility of using Arduino and Flash 8 to create a simple remote control device that would allow a user to interact with a story. The story consists of various movie clips arranged in flash along the timeline and across 4 scenes with a point of interaction occurring in each scene where three buttons appear on screen; the users choice of button dictates which movie clip will play next. I wish to use Arduino to control these buttons by building a control unit consisting of 3 buttons (A,B,C), a play button and a restart button.
I use an iBook G4 and Flash 8 professional. I have not yet acquired any Arduino hard/software as this will be provided for me once i finalize my plans.
I am completely new to Arduino and i am using the Internet for reference and to find information. I was wondering if you could spare a few minutes to explain if you think this scenario is possible for me to achieve and if you could offer any advice?
