Hello, I am an artist who is new to Arduino. (I have been using Little Bits, most recently creating a sound machine, to play field recordings for a project).
What I would like to create is a coin operated prompt/idea printer. You put in a coin, press a button and the machine prints out a prompt/assignment/quote pulled randomly from an existing list of items.
I am wondering if this is something a newbie would be able to accomplish fairly easily, (I see there is a thermal printer available). What about the coin operated part?
any help would be greatly appreciated! best, alice
