Free USB Infrared Toy v2 PCB via Facebook comments

Every Friday we give away some extra PCBs via Facebook. The first few people who comment on this at Facebook get a free PCB. More PCBs via Twitter on Tuesday and the blog every Sunday.

This week we’re giving away two USB IR Toy v2 PCBs. Use a remote control with your computer, view infrared signals on a logic analyzer, or capture and replay remote control buttons. USB Infrared Toy v2 has higher-power infrared transmitter and several new features:

  • 100mA constant current IR transmitter with improved range
  • Infrared frequency measurement
  • Pin breakout area

Don’t forget there’s free PCBs three times a every week:

  • Free PCB Sunday. The classic. Every week, right here on the blog
  • Tweet-a-PCB Tuesday. Follow us and get boards in 144 characters or less
  • Facebook PCB Friday. Free PCBs while you wait for the weekend

Get IR Toy v2 for $22.05 at Seeed Studio, including worldwide shipping.

NEW: pick your free PCB from the Dangerous Prototype free PCB drawer. The first few commenters will now receive a coupon code for 1 PCB with free shipping. You can choose this PCB, or another PCB if you prefer.

The online shop gives you a choice of free PCBs, and you won’t need to enter your details every time you win. We like it because the address format is standardized and ready to print on a label.

Some stuff:

  • Yes, we’ll mail it anywhere in the world!
  • We’ll contact you via Facebook for shipping info.
  • First come, first serve. If we can’t contact the first commenter, or there’s no reply within 24 hours, we move down the list. You could consider making a request even if it looks like all the PCBs are gone.
  • Limit one PCB per address per month please.
  • Like everything else on this site, PCBs are offered without warranty.

We try to stagger free PCB posts so every time zone has a chance to participate, but the best way to see it first is to subscribe to the RSS feed, follow us on Twitter, or like us on Facebook.
