Teaching the Raspberry Pi how to read analog inputs is easier than you think! The Pi does not include a hardware analog to digital converter, but a external ADC (such as the MCP3008) can be used along with some bit banged SPI code in python to read external analog devies. Here is a short list of some analog inputs that could be used with this setup.
Read more & this goes great with our MCP3008 – 8-Channel 10-Bit ADC With SPI Interface.
