Thanks a lot guys, you've given me a lot to research.

I have what might be a stupid question now, assuming I go with an Arduino, but I'm a newb so please excuse me.  I understand that traditionally you write programs which you upload to an Arduino controller.  That's cool for robots or whatever.  

But is it possible to write a program that merely reads A/D input (pots) from the Arduino board and into a PC program at run-time?  So, as I fiddle with these pots, I can read the values from a program on the PC?

Hi all,

I have an idea for a little project I'd like to try and build that would require reading about ~15 potentiometers from a PC, ideally through USB.

The pots would be a mix of standard rotary (knob) pots and 2 axis (joystick) pots.

I'm a total Arduino newb, so I'm looking for suggestions on feasibility, what kind of board I should get, etc.  I have done some research, but I'm still not sure about the limits on the number of inputs possible, etc.

Thanks!
