Christmas mini project.
Well i have an idea in my mind about a mini christmas project but i dont know how to make it.
It will be an arduino with a buzzer ,a small lcd display (16x2 probably) ,a big red push button and some red leds.
What this thing is going to do ?
Every time you connect it to your pc though usb port and you push the red button it will tell you how many
days , months,minutes ,etc are left for the christmas eve ,new years eve .
But when the christmas eve come and you push the button it will say with big letters it's christmas ,the leds will be blinking all the time and a christmas tone is going to be played though the buzzer .
What im not sure about is what lcd display to choose serial or paralllel (because i haven't worked with lcd displays in the past)
how to interface it with the arduino and how to play the music with the buzzer .
Any suggestions accepted.
