How-To: Personal Applause Sign

How-To: Personal Applause Sign


Randy Sarafan writes:

For the longest time, people have been neglecting to applaud my myriad accomplishments. I could not abide by this and henceforth set out to resolve this issue. The solution wasn’t immediately obvious, but after mulling it over for a while, it suddenly hit me. People have been culturally conditioned to clap for light-up signs that read “APPLAUSE.”

From that moment on, it became clear to me that I had to make my own light up “APPLAUSE” sign that I could wirelessly trigger whenever the moment necessitated a round of admiration. And let me tell you, it works like a charm. You can get people to applaud you for almost anything.

He uses a hacked wireless doorbell to trigger the sign.
