Idea development

We really wanted to use arduino on this project as Karla has had hardly any experience with it, and I have done, but nothing too complicated as I was never allowed to play with Jon’s kit too much 😉

However, we discussed through all of our requirements, to sense sound, gps, and send it somewhere online to visualize, and it occurred to us that maybe android would be more suited to our needs than arduino, and we both have more experience in using it. This would also give us a far wider audience who have access to the equipment to use our product, and would mean we could possibly integrate it with some API such as foursquare which already has some location based gamification.

However, when we talked this over with Mike, he was still really keen on the arduino idea, particularly lilypad as it is a lot less used, and so we decided to stick with the initial plan.
