New Tutorial! Flora TV-B-Gone #WearableWednesday

flora-tv-b-gone

Hidden inside this fashion accessory is a stealthy purpose– it powers down television sets from across the room! Our new tutorial will walk you through the steps for creating your own Flora TV-B-Gone, a wearable gadget triggered by the button in the center of its flower design. The infrared LEDs communicate with TVs the same way your remote does (invisibly to the human eye) but the program contains codes to power down just about every TV brand. You can embellish your design however you like to match your outfit or encase it completely ina jacket pocket. The basic design is here, how you make yours is up to you!
