So my idea is to take an rf sensor that is able to detect signal strength in the 2.4Ghz range
How about this: put that idea on the backburner and return to it once you're more familiar with electronics ( throughout this entire post, I've assumed you have very little familiarity, so if anything I'm saying is wrong, just ignore me :-P )Make a simpler project first. Electronic dice might be fun, but I'd suggest something that will help you to make this eventual project work. What about this: see that LED circuit there? Why not make it and attach it to a potentiometer, and see if you can get it to light up the LEDs like you'd expect it to. This would mean you'd get to learn HOW the LM3914 chip works and, by extension, how to read/find datasheets for the given chips. Once you do this, then you can PROBABLY move into the full circuit (without any vibration yet, just replicate what's already been done), since by that point you'll understand a bit more about what's going on.MIKE
Good luck! And don't be afraid to ask questions. sometimes, someone on the forum had exactly the same problem you did and just knows the answer. I've probably learned more on this forum about electronics than I ever did in any of the classes I took. You are right, though -- one doesn't learn electronics by reading. Learn by doing...and asking and then doing more :-PMIKE
