Create a virtual remote control with Arduino and python

 After explaining the ins and outs of the Arduino infra-red remote control library, CY demonstrated a method of sending IR signals by entering commands into the Arduno IDE's serial monitor and then having the Arduino take care of the IR sending. However this turns out to be somewhat cumbersome, so they've followed up with a tutorial on how to make a full virtual remote control using python. This results with a graphical representation of a typical remote, and is much more user friendly - for example:

For notes and the required code in this part of the series, check out the project page. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

When adding external circuitry to your next Arduino project, you'll need a protoshield to mount the external circuitry. In doing so, consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega range, we offer a complete range for you to work with.
