In today’s edition of “Engineering Roundtable,” SparkFun Engineer and all-around swell guy Chris Taylor discusses infrared protocol and his newest project - the IR Shark.
Inspired by the TV-b-Gone, Chris' project uses infrared technology to not only transmit IR TV commands, but to capture and save them as well. This gives Chris the power to turn on and off other people’s TVs at will and also grants him access to more controls (like channel up and down or volume).
