I am looking to film a short skit. I have an RF transmitter and RF receiver that I already can get working. I plan to press a button and to wirelessly create a spark that will light something on fire! (i know, exciting). My question is how can I create a spark using the arduino. Obviously I would use the arduino to trigger something that would make a spark, but anyone have any ideas? I just need a spark to ignite a patch of gasoline or something along those lines. I dont need an actual full-fledged fire starter.
I’m planning to put the arduino far far away from where the fire will ignite. In the ideal world I’d have the end of a wire spark and that way it will be small and I can most certainly hide the wire somehow. Ideas? I’d appreciate any feedback.
