How to build a wifi or bluetooth capable button pusher for turning on computer from a distance?
I have been googleing this like crazy and cannot find anything close enough related to what I am trying to do. I would like to be able to (ideally) use an iphone or ipad to send a wireless signal to a circuit board that then tells a piston (button pushing) mechanism to push the cylindrical on button on my computer. It doesn't have to be a wireless signal, I could settle for less considering my lack of expertise in the area. I am however confident in soldering and some scripting, which I thought about using a raspberry pi might work for this, especially for the wireless part of the project, but I would prefer still something with even less overhead. If anyone has any ideas or direction that would be awesome.
