As a quick break from software, I spent a little time this evening soldering together my TV-B-Gone Kit. It was way fun to break out all my microelectronics gear. Gave me an excuse to clean up my desk. This thing is the silliest tool ever: it’s programmed with a mess of TV remote codes — but only those to turn off TVs. So, just point at a TV near you, hit the button, and it’ll almost certainly turn off.

  1. Those are fantastic. Especially useful in travel situations. I’ve had bartenders ready to pull the TV off the wall.
