TV-B-Gone customer video!


Moosetech Commander’s fantastic TV-B-Gone video!


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. Excellent video, but your hold and solder technique scares the hell out of me. I got burned bad once, and never ever again. Get yourself a pair of helping hands from Rad Shack. Cost you about $15 and will save you from the worst burn of your life.

    Secondly, what’s up with the dish for a soldering iron holder? Amazed it doesn’t shatter from the temperature differential. Favor #2, please buy a real soldering iron, nice, heat controlled. Again, Rad Shack is close and their best is about $75 and compares very well to a Digital Weller.

  2. The video was good, but the music caught my attention because the sample looping in the background is from the Twin Peaks soundtrack. Heh…

  3. I learned electronics pre-internet. I have burned myself. I consider burns to be reminders not to work too late. To each there own. Any kids out there should learn how to solder from http://www.ladyada.net/learn/soldering/thm.html.

    The amazing plate is Cornell — very heat resistant. The iron is angled pointing upwards so it is not touching the plate surface. The radio shack iron is quite satisfactory — I use what I am used to.

    But enough about me — I’m here to brag about my kid.

    My son (14) made the awesome video — he mounted the camera over head and sat across the room taking shots from his laptop. Here is a lego stop motion he did a while back: http://www.flickr.com/photos/moosetech/3511347430/in/set-72157617841014904/

    Peace! y’all

  4. By the way, building the TV-B-Gone is fun, but not as fun as bringing it to bars where I play music. 🙂
