Help! I need an arduino programmer!

OK, so I am working on a kitchen appliance, and I need a basic Arduino program writing. There will be 3 inputs (2 x switches, 1 x light sensor) and 4 outputs, (2 DC motors, 2 x Solenoids)

The program is as follows;

1. Press button 1.
2. Motor 1 runs until Light Sensor triggers
3. Solenoid 1 activates (2 second)
4. Press switch 2
5. Motor 2 runs for 5 seconds
6. Solenoid 2 activates for 2 seconds

Simple enough right!

Well I have an arduino board, 2 dual H-Bridge boards, 2 x geared DC motors and 2 x solenoids all ready to go.

I would need the thing wired up, and working and returned. (I’ll pay all postage costs)

Please get in touch if this is of interest…

Rocking and Rolling!

Hello again,
It’s been a while since I have had chance to update on here, as I’ve been pretty busy!

Padstand is coming into its busy period, Xmas, and we are pleased to announce its brother, FireStand – in time for the Kindle Fire HD launch.

Shnuggle is doing fantastically, with our finalist entry into ThePitch2012 last weekend, followed by our stand at the BabyShow and being shortlisted in the Nursery Industry Awards next weekend!

With regards to freelance work, I’m contracting for Bombardier Aerospace in Belfast for a short term (6 month) contract, as well as managing a design project for an amazing new kind of baby travel system, as well as a great new commercial kitchen appliance. (Both top secret, for now!)

Although busy, I’m always looking to discuss new design projects, so if you have something on your mind, get in touch!
