I'm just now learning to use an Arduino and currently know very little. I'm working my way through the basics in the educational documents at the moment.
I didn't really have a plan for what to do with this device when I bought it, I just got it out of a desire to learn. I've been trying to think of a project to ultimately turn the atmega2560 into though and landed on a long term goal of building it into a word processor.
Please note, I do not want this to be anything too fancy. I just want to create a system that exclusively types text documents and can save them in a .txt file format. I still have a lot of things to figure out here including finding the best display and keyboard interface for this, and coming up with a way to save these text documents to another device for transfer from one computer to another.
Before I can get to any of that, I'm trying to figure out if this is even possible to begin with. I know from studying old 8-bit computers like the Sinclair and Commodore computers that 8KB of RAM simply isn't a lot and can easily be filled when typing documents. This has lead me to wonder if the RAM can be expanded, as if it cannot then I don't believe there's much sense in even trying to go forward with that project and I'll need to think about something else.
Thanks in advance
