I once took an old infrared remote and used it to control an arduino project via an infrared receiver. If you can find the HEX codes that someones TV remote transmits, and then program an elaborate arduino project to respond to those inputs from the infrared receiver, you could have the project start making noise when someone pushes power, start moving when they change the volume, and maybe stop everything when they push some other button. You can even put multiple arduino projects that either all do the same thing, or different things given the same input from the remote.
The only issue is that you can't hide the actual arduino project, the infrared receiver has to be in direct view of the remote.
This project is funny because most people assume that their TV remote ONLY works with their TV and their is no way to have something else respond to it.

How do I put the servo together? What should be connected to what parts?
No public wish lists :(
