Since my son (6) has a school project, I figured I could "trick" it out a bit (and use it as an excuse to my wife to buy an Arduino). Unfortunately the project is due next week and I don't know a lot about the Arduino. Normally I would spend hour upon hours reading up on stuff, but my time is kinda-limited. Perhaps you can help? I'm looking to keep things relatively low cost, but I would like to re-purpose everything for a many yet to be determined projects. For this project I would like to add a motion sensor to my son's dinosaur diorama and have it growl when you approach it. So my questions are:
- Do you have any suggestion for which Arduino and what parts to get?
- Do you know of any examples that might help me with my project?
