Sound Activated Fan
Random thought, why not 2 pins for 80mA? - RtyQ
2 output pins in parallel? maybe, but you can not short-circuit them together: if during the setup or a transition one pin is high and the other one low (even for few microseconds), your Arduino is gone... it may work with a couple of diodes, but then the transistor is cheaper and more efficient (diodes have a voltage drop of 0.7V, a saturated BC547 a Vce of just 0,18V) - masfiora
Nice idea, just a comment: the relay you are using (as I can see from the picture a JQC-3F-5V) needs a current of about 65mA to be activated, while the max output current into/from any Arduino output pin is 40mA. I suggest to drive the relay through a transistor (i.e. BC547)
No not at a distance, unless they are screaming at each other, then it might pick up their sound. The optimal distance to speak into the fan is 6-7 inches from the front.
