Fart-Operated TV Remote: This Will End Badly

Fart-Operated TV Remote: This Will End Badly

An intrepid modder by the name of Schmidtn decided to build himself a remote control that, when it detected the foul odour of flatulence, would change the TV to a random channel. How fiendishly brilliant.

Here's his explanation:

My Pops really enjoys two things; 1) channel surfing and 2) farting. So one day I was over at Hackaday and read about a guy who used his Arduino to turn a TV on and off with one of those brainwave reading headsets. Then later on that same day I was here at Instructables and a fellow had made an office chair that twitters every time he farted. So, I got to thinking and decided to mash those two hacks into one remote that changes the TV to a random channel every time he tutes!

Plus, if you throw it in a plastic enclosure and hide it between the couch cushions; you've got a purdy dang good prank!

That's all well and good until he figures it out, decides he wants to change the channel, forces it a little bit and messes his pants. Who will be laughing then?? [Instructables via Boing Boing]
