I'm just starting off with Arduino, and needs some guidance as to how to approach a project I'm hoping to tackle.
Here's the hope. I have about 20 different blocks that will each have a unique sound associated with it. There will be a "base station" with 5 slots in a row. I want to be able to take 5 different blocks, put them in each of the 5 slots on the base, and have the Arduino play the 5 sounds in sequence.
From the research I've done, it seems i'll need an audio shield in order to play the sounds.
The bigger challenge - or at least the question I have - is how to get the Arduino to be able to identify the individual blocks. What's the best way to do this? What would be the best kind of sensors to use?
Help!!! Many thanks.
