I'm very excited at the prospect of my first arduino project. Is anyone familiar with the mobile game Paper Toss? If not I'm sure you've attempted to throw scrunched up paper balls into a bin as if it were a basketball hoop. Was interested in doing my first arduino project which would allow the bin to sense the paper balls as they fell in so I could turn it into a score-able game. What would be the best solution to this idea? What kind of parts would I need? I know very little about the types of sensors I could use.
Also, would it make any difference getting a Leonardo instead of an Uno? I like the convenience of having a micro USB port.
Thanks in advance guys. Can't wait to get started!
