A TV-B-Gone is a small device that turns off most televisions. It’s handy for dining out, except everyone gives you funny looks while you use it, so I decided to embed it in a hooded sweatshirt. I made a switch by using the metal zipper pull. When it bridges the space between the two pads of conductive thread, the device is activated. Essentially all I have to do is zip my hoodie up or down to turn TVs around me off. I made an instructable so you can see how I worked with the conductive thread.
