USB IR Toy free PCB build

Posted on Monday, February 20th, 2012 in builds by DP

Kenith built the USB IR Toy free PCB. You can use it as a remote control with your computer, view infrared signals on a logic analyzer, or capture and replay remote control buttons.

Dangerous Prototypes never ceases to amaze me with how they are poster child of open source hardware. You can literally go back in the forum archives and watch their products evolve as members bounce ideas back and forth. Then, in the end, they post everything online with an open license, get a batch of 100 put together to sell some, and let people with it as they will.

If you build a free PCB we’ll send you another one! Blog about it, post a picture on Flicker, whatever – we’ll send you a coupon code for the free PCB drawer.

You can get IR Toy v2 for $22.05, including world wide shipping.

    Nicest-looking free build yet, I’d say.
