So I was at radio shack today, and was browsing the arduino stuff while my buddy bought a cable. I stumbled upon a motor, it was $10, and was powered by a 3 pin connector. It looked exactly the same as the ones my fans use. Can I use a fan controller to power this motor? I think it would be really cool to have something spinning inside or outside of my case. If this is possible, I am at a loss for what to have spinning. The obvious disco ball seems a bit too obvious, I want something more unique. Any help or suggestions on the matter would be greatly appreciated thumb.gif

I see no reason why it wouldn't work as long as the controller can provide the proper voltage etc to the motor.
