One of Ian’s projects featured at Hack a Day, a USB remote control receiver, was the 5th most popular project of 2009. We’re surprised the Bus Pirate didn’t make that list, but we’re proud of this project too. Our primary music and video player is a PC, we made this device because we needed it, and we use it daily to control Winamp and VLC.

This announcement is well-timed, as we’re currently putting the final touches on a new infrared receiver/transmitter toy. Look for this project in the next few weeks, but we’ll give away some prototype preview PCBs later today.

Thanks Hack a Day!
