When we were putting together the TV-B-Gone kit, we started imagining a dystopian future, filled with televisions, where this kit would be super useful and we'd be a hero for having one. And while maybe that's dramatic, the TV-B-Gone is perfect for playing pranks on your friends during the Super Bowl or getting some peace and quiet during dinner.
The TV-B-Gone is a kit that, when soldered together, allows you to turn off almost any television within 150 feet or more. It works on over 230 total power codes - 115 American/Asian and another 115 European codes. You can select which zone you want during kit assembly.
This is an unassembled kit which means that soldering is required - but it-0 very easy and a great introduction to soldering in general. The kit-0 powered by 2x AA batteries - that aren-0 included - and the output comes from 2x narrow beam IR LEDs and 2x wide-beam IR LEDs.
And now for the brands!
