TV-B-Gone Kit

Technology

Tired of all those TVs everywhere? Want a break from advertisements while you’re trying to eat? Want to zap screens from across the street? The TV-B-Gone kit is what you need. The new v1.2 works worldwide, turning off virtually any TV by running 230 TV power codes for Asian/North American and European IR remote standards. Built by Adafruit in co-operation with TV-B-Gone inventor Mitch Altman, this kit is a great way to build something truly useful. Check out the excellent tutorials and forums at adafruit.com.
