Ok, fair enough. Here's something that you could do for me. Do a bit of research into electronically measuring pressure in the range of 0 to say 300 psi, dynamically changing. I want to capture samples at 50 times a second and store the data. Can you find an off the shelf product to do this?

Maybe this will work, its a little expensive @$75: http://search.digikey.com/scripts/DkSearch/dksus.dll?Detail&name=MSP6864-ND 50 readings per second will be no problem. What do you want to do with the data? Activate something when pressure reaches a point?
