Chris Young’s IRIO Board Makes IR Control Easy

Infrared devices are everywhere – and now it’s easy to control them thanks to our member, Chris Young, and his IRIO board.  It’s a simple device that allows any microcontroller to send and receive IR signals which makes it easy to control your environment.

You can control:

  • TV & Cable Boxes
  • Satellite Dish Receivers
  • Digital Cameras
  • Remote Control Cars, Drones, etc.
  • Computer Mouse & Keyboards
  • And Much More

Chris wrote a great guide published on the Adafruit Learning Center that you can find here.

Bonus Tip:

If you’re looking at learning to solder to PCB boards, this is a great project, and Chris & Bill put together a video showing just how to it!
