Hello, I’m new to this forum so I’m sorry if this is posted in the wrong sections
Basically I want to make a present box that would have a count down to a certain date , when that date reaches the lock would unlock and the present could be open. A count down would be shown on small screen or something of that type.
I was thinking that LilyPad Arduino would fit the job because of its low power needs , and it’s small size. The Basic idea in my head is that maybe I could hack into a counter watch of some sort and set the countdown and take the alarm signal and route it the arduino to interrupt it then it will unlock the lock.
Do you think this is doable with the LilyPad ? is the LilyPad the right choice? and could have this working on a battery for 1 or 2 months or so without the need to change the battery for the LilyPad? as I’m thinking of getting this kit http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/product_info.php?products_id=8617#
thanks for the help
