Hi guys & girls,
Recently got my Arduino, exciting!
I'd like to make a project that controls speed of a fan on a users desk, from say 0 (off) to 100 (full power). The easiest way I can think of is varying the amount of electrical input to the fans motor.
I will sync this up with some kind of experience on the screen, where perceived "wind" blown at the user is variable.
Not really sure where to start. I can program the variable for wind speed easily enough, it's more the electronics side I'm new to.
Before I fry the board or electrocute myself, does anyone have advice for getting such a project started? (or even know of a similar project spec I can err, borrow?)
