  1. I do not see this as such a big problem, because if you can put together the data you need, similar to the LCD's and only relavantes further, the string should not be too long. For what I imagined, that would be: - CPU load - CPU temperature - GPU load - GPU temperature - RAM occupancy The string could look like this: 25;55;30;45;3545; or: CL25,CT55,GL30,GT45,R3545; So only the most necessary joined together with separators. That makes 36 characters in the constelation, that is 360 bits. Maximum update at 9600 baud: 26 / s. But that's not all that much, since such ads are rather crude and sluggish. Apart from that, even the small Arduino Uno creates the 115000 baud.
  2. That sounds like a very good idea for me. The problem is probably first in the hardware. I could not find any single LED strip, which can actually be controlled by the computer. But That would be the prerequisite for such a project. Nevertheless, theoretically it would already be possible. Individually controllable RGB LEDs are there enough, keyword WS2812 or Neopixel. A microcontroller could take control, which only needs to be fed with the relevant data. Once you have the opportunity to easily pass on these relevant data, hardware projects will not be long in coming. And maybe that also takes the way as with LCD2USB. If there are craft solutions first, and you see that it is possible, the demand is greater and the hardware matured. AIDA could lay the foundation for many such projects with this simple interface. That was also the reason for my own request: The code for this project, as well as a small hardware description would be written in a few days. And this idea will most likely be included in my planned case.
  3. A concrete project does not exist yet. The idea is to build a steampunk case and it always looks good when old analog gauges or segment displays are used. Driving the individual parts is no problem with an Arduino. But passing on the data to the microcontroller seems to be more difficult. During my research on the net I found a lot of demands, but only a few solutions. However, these solutions always consist of small self-written programs, which use either the shared memory of AIDA64 or the OpenHardwareMonitor library or their web interface. Without this monster of MS Visual Studio and knowledge in C # or Python you can not get on with it. I think for such an issue would be the modding scene and also the hobbyists who might want to control their heating inversely proportional to the CPU load, grateful. For the output formatting I would like a variable solution in which you simply put together a string. Just like the individual display parts on the LCD's. Then the selection of the Com Port, a baud rate and interval to it and done.
  4. Hi, it would be nice if there was the possibility to send sensor values unformatted as a number or percentage, via a serial port. Similar to the LCD displays, only without formatting, or pure numbers with separators. Together with a small GUI. Background is the simple evaluation of the data with a microcontroller and display in different ways. I imagine not only LCD or OLED, but rather seven segment display, nixi tubes or an analog pointer display. That would create a lot of possibilities.
