My attempt at coming to a realization

I hadn’t realized how difficult it would be to realize this project. The big idea has been there since last summer and maybe someone else’s mistake is a sign (LCD screen). The  LCD screen seems to have worked its way into my project. I need to get some pin headers, so that I can test it on a breadboard.

I think I’m going for arcade buttons for the collect button. I need a thermal printer, POS, I researched and discovered that Adafruit has a thermal printer that has an Arduino library, so I’ll probably get that. It looks super simple: http://learn.adafruit.com/mini-thermal-receipt-printer/

I’ll have to go to Creatron and get stuff. I also found out that Factory Direct on College closed! So sad!! I wanted to get a cheap keyboard, guess I’ll have to go to Active Surplus.

I’ll have to code, Processing and I guess Arudino? I think I’m a little rusty haven’t coded, since last year. I also have a Midterm this Wed. for my politics class, so I’m a little more focused on that. I have Thursday off, so I’ll be working all day.
