Hello forum, ive been looking to get the arduino for quite some time now, but have been looking at other projects to try to gain some footing before diving in myself.
What I have noticed is that most people use the power house Duemilanove or similar chip-set, but honestly its a little to big for what I want to use the arduino for this time, I will probably get a UNO some time in the future, but for now i need something compact that have the power to do what i need
So what i need my arduino to do is: Read the serial data from a Cue:Cat PS/2, Uploading the data to a sql server using a Libelium GPRS Shield, displaying data on a small serial lcd, receive input from a 1-9 keyboard, And possibly using a SDD to store temporary data.
I want to use this as a learning project adding more and more features to it as i go. Starting with the CueCat, and displaying the string on the lcd.
Any suggestions on what arduino to use, or any advice would be greatly appreciated!
