Post by: michu on Jan 05, 2013, 11:30 pm
Hey guys

I did a quick theft protection project this evening, it's simulate a running TV. I hope you like it:

Nice idea! Simple but, effective! In the video, it seems that it needs to be brighter but, that would be just a matte of adding more leds.

Great idea, you should kickstart this into a product! ==> www.kickstarter.com

TV simulators are already commercially available.

The LED could run on batteries. The TV would take a lot more power.

Besides some projects are about figuring out how to do it yourself instead of buying something or going the easy route.

Mea culpa, your are completely right. That's the fun part of playing with these kind of toys ;)
