Doktor Andy has developed a method of using a cheap print server as a network controlled switch.

Video after the jump.

“One day it hit me. I wanted to connect my coffee-machine to the internet. and my television…and my desk light… There are different approaches. One of the most stupid ones was to stuff a relais-board into my pc and….greeaaat idea..absolutely….”sorry, I cannot cook coffee because I first have to reboot my computer….”

Thanks Andy

    Seriously! This is perhaps one of the most “cool” and “creative” projects I have seen for remote switching over a network. Say good bye to 900mHZ RF/IR remotes and hello to my little tcp/ip relay board friend!
