Can anyone offer guidance and build advice/help for an art installation/interactive display cases I'm attempting to create?
Basically I'd like to use the Arduino Duemilanove with a wave shield and other items to create interactive display cases for my thesis show in the next month.
I'd like to incorporate a set of pressure sensors in a bench so when the audience sits in a particular pose the pressure will trigger a halogen spot light in the display case in front of the bench to get progressively brighter, I'd also like a timed mp3 audio clip to play through external speakers and a turntable to rotate the object in the display case (for an uninterrupted minute). Power for the setup should be converted from AC. And I was wondering if it's possible to use 3.5mm audio cables to route the info from the pressure sensors to the arduino and waveshield that will be hidden in the base of the display case? What do I need to control the dimmer ready spot and are pressure sensors the best way to go for this setup?
I'll also need coding help.
If there is anyone that can offer consulting/assembly help in the Toronto area I'd be glad to hear from you!
