Is my Idea possible in VB.Net ? If no which lang should I take

I have a nice Idea in my head.
Im thinking about writing an application in VB.Net, that can control USB ports.
The purpose will look like:
Im at home, I wannt a ready hot coffee as Im in my office. So i take my phone and I write a mail to adres (example) The body of the mail is "DO_A_Coffee"
The application, running on my laptop in the office gets the mail.
It recognizes the string "DO_A_COFFEE" and uses the usb port to activate the prepared Machine to make my coffee.

I know that VB.NET has a tool for USB connections, but I have no experience with that.
But at all, is this even possible in
