marasigan - TV-B-Gone (Hat)
The instructions are for a TV-B-Gone Hat, but I may (if allowed) just work on an ad for building just the remote. The TV-B-Gone is a trigger which can turn off (or on) almost any television within at least 75 feet by simply pointing the device and pressing a button.
I chose this project because I can't count how many times I've been somewhere and been distracted by the television, whether in public or at a friend's home. I don't like watching TV, but when it's on I have a hard time paying attention to more important things. This Make Project, while giving those with similar struggles as me a way out without having to say a word, will also provide entertainment as we watch people try to figure out why their TV set keeps turning off.
My approach will likely utilize illustrative techniques. I think I can pull it off with primarily graphics, although I tend to use type in most of my designs. This approach may change as I start to lay out thumbnails.
