I thought up a cool idea for something I could make with Arduinos, but before I rush out and spend a lot of money, a sanity check from some people with experience using the Ardunio would be helpful.
I want to create a remote control lighting controller using DMX so that I can turn lights on and off from the top of a ladder or such. For my project, I'll likely need two Arduinos. The first one will have a DMX shield and a wireless receiver of some sorts. The second one will have the buttons/knobs and the LCD display so that I can see what I'm doing, as well as a wireless transmitter.
Can someone confirm that this is possible and the likelyhood that I will run into serious problems? I don't want to get halfway through this only to find that I run out of memory or pins.
I planning on using this DMX shield. http://blog.wingedvictorydesign.com/2009/04/29/arduino-dmx-512-io-shield/
If you want me to clarify anything, just ask.
