    Not sure in many of you have seen these but check it out.

    --------------

    Your TV-B-Gone® universal remote control resembles other TV remote controls, but is different in two important ways. First, it only has a power button that allows you to switch a TV on or off. You control when you see, rather than what you see. Second, the device is so small that it easily fits in your pocket, so that you have it handy whenever you need it wherever you go: airports, bars, restaurants, laundromats, etc.

    “You can use TV-B-Gone® to control access to television for philosophical or practical reasons, or simply to have fun!“

    —Mitch Altman, Inventor of TV-B-Gone®

    TV-B-Gone® now features the Instant Reactivation Feature which allows you to turn TVs on or off quickly and easily. TV-B-Gone® is a type of Universal Remote Control which works by shining pulses of invisible light that tells most any TV to turn off or on.

    --------------

    And now for some videos of TV-B-Gone in action

    I own one of those and I still doing pranks at my school, it's so funny, all the class (including the teacher) are always suprise by this. They think it's because the tv it's too old.

    I would say that its NOT all real in that second video in Vegas ......most monitors don't even have a remote sensor on them they are not like TV screens!

    and the overhead projection near the end was a projection not a TV screen nor a monitor!

    I SO want one. Oh my God.

    Can someone post a direct link on how to make one yourself? That instructables link, after clicking, showed no videos on how to make one yourself.


    EDIT: Screw it. It's only $20. I can afford that.
