I'm looking at starting a project to learn Arduino.
What I want to do is to build on to a kids toy similar to this and make it more interactive:
My idea was to use a battery-powered wireless Arduino device to run an NFC reader in the bottom of the toy. Each block would have a different NFC chip either stuck to it or embedded.
When a block was placed into the toy the Arduino would read the block and send a signal to another Arduino that is hooked up to some LED strips. The LED strips would change colour depending on what block was placed into the toy.
Is this possible with Arduino? Or should I be looking elsewhere?
In the end, it'll probably be more of a learning project that a working toy.
