Whenever I bring my TV-B-Gone out to restaurants, I look suspicious pointing it around. So I embedded the device into a jacket and turned it into a wearable TV silencer. For the switch, I sewed paths of conductive thread that become bridged by the metal zipper pull when it passes by. At the restaurant or bar, all I have to do is unzip my jacket to turn off the TV(s).
For this project, you will need:
- TV-B-Gone kit
- conductive thread
- regular thread
- jacket/hoodie with a metal zipper pull and front pocket
- heat shrink tubing
- hand sewing needle
- soldering iron & solder
- sewing pins
Process based on my TV-B-Gone Hoodie tutorial, which goes into more detail.
