I was working on a project like this about a year ago, ps2 keyboard + arduino + sd card reader + 4x20 lcd. I got the basic stuff working and put it on hold due to other interests, I still have some unresolved problems with deleting portions of text from file (managing the deletions in the middle of the text file saved on sd card). Let me know if you pursued your project. Cheers!

Hi, 

Thanks for showing some intrest. I did persue this project, but it is on hold for past 6 months. I am in High School and I have a lot of work. However, I would love to finish this if I just had the time! Last I remember I hit a road block early on in the code, I think it had something to do with the fact that I was using a string when I should have been using an array. 

I am intrested to see what you have; do you have a video and/or code you are willing to share? 

But it would be a very simple word processor. Like electric-typewriter-simple.

I don't see why not. You'd probably want to add an external storage solution like a card interface and printing would be a hassle. You wouldn't get a really great dictionary out of it or much text styling, either, and formatting files to standards you could use with other platforms would be a headache. But as a proof of concept I'd think it wouldn't be too big of a challenge.

All i really want is something real basic, nothing to fancy.
