Yes an external hardware component will be needed... likely we will use an arduino board. This component can read from the temp probes and control the fan. A program will then control all of it, one could do it directly on the arduino - but since this is an android project will write a program for the phone that can communicate with the hardware, either via bluetooth or USB / Android Accessory Dev kit. There are a bunch of similar projects that people have done with arduino on this if you google it. Will post our build out on this piece when we get going with it!
