What do you mean by that? LCD screens are generally flat and rigid and come in a huge variety of designs from custom monochrome displays with a few segments for 1080p backlit color displays showing full-motion video. Fabric, on the other hand, is soft and flexible. Are you talking about some kind of flexible video display? Maybe an array of LED's for showing low-resolution animations?
I guess I was getting ahead of myself. I was looking for something like this
But it seems the technology isn't out there yet.
Audio & Interactivity
Booklet compiled by Mark Anderson
Based heavily on the works of Mike McRoberts' Arduino Starters Kit Manual:
A complete Beginners Guide to the Arduino.
I've been using this book and its a nice easy intro....
I'm having a hard time finding this. Would you be able to link me something?
You might also want to check out a couple of books "Beginning C for Arduino, Second Edition" - it covers setting up the build environment on your computer and basic C programming. Also, the book "Practical Arduino - cool Projects for Open Source Hardware" has a bunch of basic ideas in there you can build on.
Yes this does seem like a good investment. I may stick with free resources for now (I'm even going to start learning on an arduino emulator first. I have some stuff to learn about electronics as well.
In your opinion, how long would it take an intelligent and quick learner like myself to learn the essentials of it if I spent 8 hours a day on it? Not looking to be a master arduino programmer, and I plan on linking several pre-written code pieces from github and the like, but I will need to know how to debug it. I have some programmer family, but don't want to bug them too much or rely on them too heavily.
