Hello. Im building my waveshield at the moment, I'm new to m.controllers and electronics in general. Ive read a little about this shield but haven't tried anything yet (still building). I would like to ask some questions here before I start.
Im building an interactive wall with the hope to use 8 IR PhotoTransistors to trigger 8 different tones, like a small non-contact keyboard. I read somewhere that the Arduino/Waveshield can only support 6switch/sensor inputs. I need 8. I have Arduino Duemilinove and the PhotoTransistors I want to use are the QRD1113/1114 REFLECTIVE OBJECT SENSOR made by Fairchild.
Could you please first tell me if this is possible and finally point me in the direction of where I can find information about code and breadboard layouts. Like I said, Im a novice but Im a fast learner. Thanks in advance. N
