Weekend Projects HOA – TV-Go-Sleep Universal TV Timer LIVE NOW

Join us NOW for the launch of our Weekend Projects Hangouts On Air. We’ll be talking with Tom Rodgers the maker of the TV-Go-Sleep Universal TV Timer, a sleep-timer remote that combines an Arduino, infrared LEDs, and the open-source TV-B-Gone library. You set the device’s timer and when the countdown is complete the project will cycle through the entire TV-B-Gone library and turn off any TV within range of the infrared LEDs.

Every Friday from Oct. 11 – Dec. 20 (except Nov. 29) we’ll be hanging out with makers of Weekend Projects, our beginner-friendly series of electronics builds powered by RadioShack. Join our host and 2012’s Maker Camp Director Nick Raymond, a guest MAKE Editor, and specially invited makers for these fun and informal hangouts.

Bounce back to this blog post at the scheduled hangout time to watch LIVE or join us on our Google+ page to ask Tom any questions. Open your copy of MAKE: Volume 35 to pp. 116-120 to read more about the project and watch the video below to see it in action.
