I was considering something of the sort -- but not related to huge computation.
There's an arduino library that will generate SHA-256 hashes. I had an arduino that was set up with a 16 x 4 LCD.
I then had a bluetooth module connected to the Arduino. I could send any text to the arduino via Android app, that received the text string. The Arduino would pass it through the SHA-256 generator and calculate the hash and pass the hash back.

Yes, you can generate the SHA-256 hash on the android phone itself much easier, but this was a prototype and has some of the pieces you are interested in.

If you later need more computational power you can get one of the Arduinos that have those ARM chips for like $30 or cheaper and then very little of your code would have to change.
Just some ideas. Smile | :)
