Well don't stretch this piece of talk, it's already clarified maybe just stick to answering the op's problem.

I don't think there is any scale or standard by which you can draw the line between a "toy" and "hobbyist equipment." so there can be no resolution to this discussion.

At this time op isn't stressing it over to get something of a standard (op's original post doesn't seem to infer any std.)he's just trying to get things working maybe after he get's the preliminary work done then you can suggest him the standards to follow but first things first let's get him working on.

HI Gianluca,

Well its an ambitious plan and a good one but you may want to revaluate your plan to know that whether you definitely need BLE rather than the conventional Bluetooth which is the 2.1+EDR, 3.0 etc!
ONly if you think your gadget is going to be battery powered then you should think about BLE else! not much use.

feel it is a misnomer to call these "toys" as they are in fact "hobby" batteries

I didn't term your hobby king batteries toys like I said "Turnigy batteries or similar rc toys batteries"  OR similar rc toys batteris and yes all the rc toys aren't that costly these days, want to have a look? go land on DX these 50$ crap drones have that sort of toy like batteries in them only nothing special.

and it doesnt make a com port port when attached to pc
neither its lights glow (tx rx)

Really ? check again there used to be a jumper on old Diecimila and Duemilanove boards targetting power from usb or external power from adapter jack or VIN so as such you may have the jumper on the external setting!
OR if not then most probably its dead!

does its power led light?

What's this?

You see if you want the answers to your posts ASAP also which are good  quality answers then you should write detail as much as possible about your hardware and software and the real time environment in which the system is proposed to workout!

How would you guys use a motor in practice? How do you connect components to them?

When I was a kid I used to drive all sorts of stuff mounted on the motor's shaft from plastic transistor housing pipes to wooden sheets.
Basically you need to get some good gearing or shaft locks like they have on the servos ,here are some of the examples >> https://www.sparkfun.com/search/results?term=motor+gear  ,there are various Gear mount hubs that you can use that may eventually suit your applicaiton.

For batteries I would suggest goto the Hobbyking website and look out for some maybe the Turnigy batteries or similar rc toys batteries, What I noted in these batteries was they can be very cheap and good quality + high capacity.

I watched an episode on the same topic done by "Dave Jones"

I'll suggest post your code and hardare files along with other files on the GITHUB rather than at this place because it can be easily lost.

I'm not in UK but I like that a 10year old want to become someone like us, You can get along with your dad and maybe shoot some questions that you may have to me online!

Ya just open up a valve with a certain per second rate of material flow(grain) and then calculate your way from there to ascertain your quantity in question.
