I previously made a slideshow on my DIY TV-B-Gone
, and many people requested I make an Instructable. So, the first in a series of DIY TV-B-Gone clones, is the TV-B-Gone Micro!
Technically, because TV-B-Gone is a brand name, this is a "TV-B-Gone clone."
is a neat little device that can turn almost any TV on or off. It uses a microcontroller hooked up to IR LEDs to output a library of on/off codes. Adafruit sells a kit
, and has the code
as well as the schematic on their website.
Here's a micro clone of the TV-B-Gone that runs on a coin cell battery, is slightly bigger than a quarter, and costs about $3.50 (compared to $20) to make!
