The IR Signal Jammer

remote jammerBy David Ponce

If you’re smart, and hold your cards close… for about $10 you’ll be able to watch whatever you want, for maybe ten minutes. It’s important that your significant other doesn’t sniff out your plans, cause then it’s all over.

See, this is an IR signal jammer. That means that, once activated, the remote wont work. She’ll (ok… maybe it’s a “he’ll”, but whatever) click, and click, and wonder just why she’s unable to put it to something other than Desperate Housewives. She’ll ask you “Honey, what’s wrong with the remote?” You mumble something or other, and keep watching. Then, she’ll check the batteries and shake her head in confusion. Meanwhile, you’re still watching.

If you’re lucky, ten minutes will go by before she says “To Hell with it!” and gets up to change the channel.

That’s it. $10 for 10 minutes of TV time. Is it worth it? You decide.

    I think I’ll just stick with putting dead batteries in the remote control :P.

    IR LED + Resistors + Battery = IR Jammer. Turn on an IR LED and aim at the TV and it will block any other signal. No way is this worth 10 bucks, the profit margin on this thing must be like 5000%

    Could this block the “laser” speed guns the cops use? They are basically IR devices, and the jammers you buy are just a array of LED?s… :)

    Yeah, rightly. I’m just making one of these, it is quite simple, about ?1.50 ($2.90) worth of stuff used. Not worth buying, but a good idea for the lazy of us.
