I'm new to Arduino and would love to get some feedback/advice/general wisdom on a project that I'd like to do. I'm looking to create a plushie that communicates with MAX/MSP to play a video clip whenever it's squeezed. My main problem is that I'm unsure of what tools to buy so right now my shopping list mainly consists of: force sensor resistors, lilypad kit, conductive thread and fabric for my plushie.
If anyone could give me any suggestions as to what else I should be purchasing (i.e: power supply, etc.) or how I should go about my project, please let me know!
Thanks in advance!
