TV-B-Gone

An article at Wired News describes a remote control that sends out a stream of ‘off’ commands for television sets, one manufacturer’s code after another, with just a single press of the button. The device, called TV-B-Gone [the site was down for exceeding its daily bandwidth allowance at the time of writing], is a key fob sized device that will turn off most TVs with a single click. This could be a fun thing to carry around, especially in places where there are banks of TVs churning out promotional content loops all day 🙂
