I'm not sure this is where this should go. basically i want to make my friend his own personal laugh track. hes known for telling the most retarded, groaner style puns/jokes imaginable, so i want him to be able to push a button, so at least hell hear someone laugh at them. if it could have multiple options, like maybe one button does a chuckle, one does an uproar, one does more like "badum chhhh".
I haven't worked out the specifics yet, but Ive briefly looked into arduino stuff before, and it seemed like it wouldn't be too hard to pull this off using this system. i have some programming skills, couple years in high school classes, not much, but enough that i can usually figure out, or look up what i don't already know. i also have some soldering experience. i don't know how to lay out all the components where they need to go, but i know how to attach them. again, just a class in high school, but i can usually scrape by.
so what I'm hoping is that someone can recommend a board/kit i could look at that should be able to handle this project. needs to be hand held size, other than that i don't really know how to define what i would need from the board itself. and hopefully some help with figuring out how to lay out all the circuitry.
thanks for any advice you can offer.
