TV-B-Gone hoodie




I bring my TV-B-Gone with me whenever I go out to eat, but it’s hard to subtly use it without the waitstaff and other customers giving me funny looks. I wanted to put it in something that would be appropriate for eating out (so no hats, sorry, Mitch) that would allow for stealth TV-B-Goning, so I used a thrifted hoodie and some conductive thread to make a zipper-activated switch for the embedded device. Works wonderfully! Check out the instructable for making your own TV-B-Gone Hoodie. Next up will be a formal version for fancier establishments.
