i want to hook up my computer to things around the house. i just wanna start out simple, but i don't know enough about i/o in c++. an example of what i want to do is have my computer hooked up to a little motor that will open or close my blinds in my bedroom using a little program i design with c++. with the program i could have my blinds rolled up at a certain time in the morning and rolled down at night. maybe later hooking up other things like power to things like tv or speakers or something. does anybody know how i could hook up a simple motor to my computer? where would i hook it up? i can't even search for this because i don't even know what it would be called. any help would be so much appreciated just cause i think that this is a really cool idea if i could somehow manage to do it
