Fancontroller

Right, back again with an update on my idea for a kick-ass fanctroller. So far, I've been coding away and right now, I'm up to the point where the actual fan control is implemented (I've already written the LCD-commands, several input functions, a setup and a menu.) But I'm having some problems.

The mother of all fancontrollers... Hopefully

So, I'm the process of making the -in my opinion- ultimate PC fan/pump controller for use with a water cooling system.

The idea is to make a bracket which fits into a 5.25" bay and holds an LCD, some type of input (probably joystick) and an arduino, so the temperature responses are completely programmable. It should have three fan/pump channels and 3-6 (however many ADCs I have left, at least 3) temperature sensors.

ROV submarine

I playing with the idea of building a ROV.

A ROV is a Remotely Operated underwater Vehicle.

I plan to start simple, with a webcam connected to a computer, and 3 motors with propellers controlled by switches, all of it strapped to a frame of sealed plastic tubes. Something close to this instructable

But the robot geek in me wont stop there! I want to build:

A moisture sensor (to warn if the electronics compartment has sprung a leak)
