In the Maker Shed: USB Infrared Toy

USB Infrared Toy

The USB Infrared Toy, available in the Maker Shed, is an assembled, open source, USB infrared remote control receiver/transmitter designed by DangerousPrototypes. Use it as a remote control with your computer, to view infrared signals on a logic analyzer, to capture and clone infrared signals, and to play IR codes. Alternate firmware also allows it to be used as a TV-B-Gone. Consider it a real universal remote. (Note: Does not include 5 pin programming header.)

    Sadly, no Mac support that I can find.  If anybody knows otherwise it’d be fun to get one.

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for 'projects in a box,' otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
