I looked into the Raspberry Pi (and Arduino, of course) but the Android+IOIO is currently the cheapest and simplest way to implement a wireless connection (IOIO is $45 plus a bluetooth dongle for $5-10).

The controller is communicating wirelessly with my phone via bluetooth, so theoretically your app could do the same thing. Once I get things running the way I'd like I can look into adding some sort of plug-in so that external apps have access to the data (or maybe help you write a plug-in for your own app). The code is at if you're curious.

What would be cool is someone with experience designing circuit boards could create one using my design that could then be ordered online. Then people could order a board and parts; the hardest thing would then be just soldering a few components to the board.
