That would be the absolute coolest. For phase 1, I think I'm going with
a Linux box (maybe even an old PC for the time being). I'll do the
typical sprinkler control features, but it'll be web-based, and if I get
adventurous, I can develop an iPhone app to control it via WiFi.
Phase 2: Put it on a tiny board in a small package, probably also Linux
Phase 3: Moisture and temperature sensors for auto-irrigation.
Phase 4: Lots of money spent on a fun project, lost learned, and no
profit. That's odd. Normally, phase 4 makes me rich...
