Kit Review – adafruit industries TV-B-Gone @ t r o n i x s t u f f

Time for another kit review! Today we will examine an easy to build kit from adafruit industries that offers literally hours and hours of fun, if you like to get up to some mischief – the TV-B-Gone. This fascinating little device is basically an infra-red remote control for televisions and some monitors. It has a microcontroller programmed with the “off” code for a wide range of display brands, and four very strong infra-red transmitting LEDs, two with a wide beam, and two with a narrow but longer beam.

The review includes a nice hat mod and some fun video 🙂

  1. At 1:16, with the TV off, it almost looks like someone’s face with a big operating-room light behind their head. ^_^

  2. I made one of these just this week. Havent used it in public yet but it works well on my tvs at home. Should be very fun.

    Is one for making TVs explode?

  4. Kristof to destroy television, you will need to build this: http://bit.ly/9xmjax
