which ones are the connection used in some other projects ? I wasn't
able to fount any
project involving some hardware extension.

Yes, we have the schematics, but we really miss a good hardware hacker
between us :)
the 3.3V supply seems fine. le'ts give it a try. we have to give power
to an OPAMP.

I didn't check if the soundcard is easily reachable, but we may
substitute the ADC on the
external sensor with it (opamps are always needed to get a bigger signal).
