OK we are going to try our first project with arduino, and here is what we need to try and achieve.
A switch is pressed (ideally a touch sensitive switch on a window pane), which basically performs two actions;
- It turns on an electrical socket (probably a fan or TV)
- It sends a message to a flash based bit of software telling it the switch has been pressed, which then reacts accordingly.
Sound easy enough? Where do I start! Help!
