Default My first USB device made by me.

HUSBF \ Homemade USB Fan.

If your computer fan fails and you need a quick replacement for tempory use. Just plug this fan in a USB port back or front place it in your machine and boot up. And withing seconds the the fan will start. It works.

I know its simple, But its my first.

It won't spin very fast, since USB only gives out about 5v.

Yeah, but why not just hook it up to a molex, so you get 12v out of it?
