How can I make an IR on/off switch?
I have a question. Of course, wanting to impress my friends, I want to make my electronics pop on and off with a push of a button (or two :-)
So, how would I make a simple wireless on/off switch using IR without microcontrollers or IC's other than the 555 (because that's all i have :-).
Isn't there a simple way to use a transistor as a switch to help me accomplish this?
