Looking for help with a simple enough idea? Answered
I say simple enough, but obviously not simple enough for me. But for someone out there this is probably something you could do in your sleep....
Looking for a setup that has two buttons. When button 1 is pushed, button 2 must then be pushed to register a count of "1" on a display.
And then button 1 and 2 must be pushed again (in that order) to register a count of "2" - and so on....
It would be nice then if a target figure could be set to trigger an action when the target number is reached.
The application is for exercise - for example burpees. Button 1 is on the ground and button 2 is above the head. Triggering both buttons gives a count of 1. And when a target such as 30 is reached an alarm or light can be activated to show completion of exercise.
It is important that two pushes of either button in a row doesn't give a count of "1" - a count is only valid if the buttons are pushed in sequence.
I'm guessing an Arduino board of some sort would be required, but its all new to me and I'm guessing its a simple enough programme if you have the know how. But I don't even know what board to purchase to get started. And while I'm purchasing the board I may as well know what else I'll need for the entire project and order all that at the same time.
So can anyone help?
