This 3 function infrared universal remote controller is programmable for use with many different brands of televisions and other devices. But, we think it is most fun when used to control your robot! Signals from this remote are compatible with the IR Receiver included in the Boe-Bot, Shield-Bot, and ActivityBot robot kits. Your robot’s microcontroller brain can decode the remote’s signals, and then drive or blink lights or make sounds in response. Our tutorials and projects show you how.
