    Hiya Guys,

    I'm looking for advice on achieving the following:

    I want a simple (very small!) circuit which, when completed, will transmit a very small packet (RF or Bluetooth) to a USB receiver connected to a PC. I need to be able to record how many packets have been received (which will be done in software at the PC-end).

    The small lever (which, when activated, will complete the circuit) may connect/disconnect around 10 times a second... so to capture each connection/disconnection I assume it will depend on the speed of the microprocessor?

    I'm not really sure where to start with this - there's possibly something already out there which will do the job?! - and I haven't even started to think about how to write the software for the PC-end... :-S

    Any advice would be massively helpful.

    Cheers,

    Steve.
