Hello there, My name is Greg and I am a senior in college for Electrical Engineering and within the last week I have came across this technology and I have a few questions I guess. These maybe bad questions but please bear with me.
First of all are the microprocessors the same as others where that I can plug them into the board and program them and then remove them? If they are, what kind of interaction can i do with them on a circuit if they are not on the board but independent?
Secondly, this is going to sound bad but I am building a more advanced beer pong table lol. I want to be able to use an LCD display and EEPROM to store the next people in line and add and delete them as i go? Would this be possible as well and what kind of coding would need to be for that (I understand how to hook up the LCD and type to it but I meant how much harder would this be to accomplish)? Also would I need this to be plugged into a PC or could i interface it with something else somehow?
That is my main questions so far. I am going to order an Arduino board tomorrow and stop fiddling with it so any early on help would be very appreciated.
