    Morning all!

    i am doing an experiment to prove that certain vending machine/games can not be won in particular ones involving timing.

    so my project is to build a device that can depress a button for a set amount of time...
    the timing needs to be adjustable preferable down to the 1/100th of a second but im sure 1/10th will surfice...

    so i have no problem building the rig and depressing action and battery suply etc etc but working with the adjustable timing is beyond me...

    preferable i would have a digital display that informs me of the timing i have selected for the process...

    all help is appreciated!! and i will post the results of the experiment once completed !!

    Seconds? Hours? ....?
    Do you mean generate a pulse?
    In that case you'll probably need a microcontroller.
