For my School assignment i have to document how to create a suitcase (I will make it look like a terrorist bom kinda thing) with a Arduino board . This will be linked with twitter via a flash game (war game with tanks)
The main idea is that you can support a red or blue team via twitter using tags “#GNR8wars go red” or something.
Eventually if the whole game and the suitcase is done it will become a showcase model for people who walk around the open days and can interact with the game via there twitter.
So I got 2 Questions for the people here that would like to pinch in a bit for me since I have little knowledge of programming.
Question1: How do it make the plug-in so that the Arduino communicates with flash (just the connection so its listening to the serial/usb port) (we might want to go and use a Ethernet shield later and ditch the Pc I now am building in the case but I'm afraid I might not have enough time to get it running)
Question2: I need to provide the scheme of fritzing to show it works before the school will buy the unit for the project. The unit only needs to flash red or blue leds and maybe drive a electric fan for noise. (for now, more stuff == cooler naturally 8-))
These are the 2 items that really are hocus-pocus to me.
I have loads of other stuff like building usecases, flowcharts, lots of info into working with the arduino around the system .
So it would be fantastic if some of you guys/girls could help me out or even make one of the items for the me.
I already had a few good tips into the brainstorming processes towards the final idea (http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1259672261/7)
Project is due in the end of the month got pretty far just need these last 2 bits
Well let me know if any of you got excited over the idea and wants to help me out :-)
Some useful links i have already found regarding some of my questions that might help us
