Hi guys, I just joined up as I would like to ask about the possibility of my first endeavour in the world of Arduino and Android! I don't know if you'll completely get what I'm trying to do as I have an inherent inability to explain things effectively, so please bare with me!
Ok, to start off I want to build a device using Arduino - as was recommended to me by someone over on overclock.net - that has the ability to control and manage 16 12V 2.0A fans, 3 24V pumps, report temperatures via USB from on-board sensors of a motherboard - the ones that 3rd-party programs like RealTemp, GPU-Z, CPU-Z, RivaTuner, etc. monitor - and all this needs to be controllable by an android app, it also needs to be able to report flow rate sensors, the RPM's of fans and LED's and lighting modules also need to be controllable. I would also need it to be able to control electronic locking mechanisms (I'm assuming I'd use something associated with servo's or motors here) as the computer case will need to be impenetrable.
I'm having a hard time concentrating at the moment so I might have missed something or a few things but I'll be sure to add them as I can remember.
Edit: So basically what I'm asking is, what do I need to learn, what type of device(s) will I need to build and where can I learn more about what needs to be done. Oh, it would also be nice to know if this is feasible, not in the financial sense, that will be of no concern, but just generally. If not, is there another way of doing it? I.e not via Arduino but something else? If so, what?
