Name the Thing Contest – 140

The prize this week is one of our new IR Jammer kits that was just released this week, this will let you jam the infrared receiver on any infrared remote controlled item such as a TV or stereo. If you are looking to solder together your first project this would be a great project to start with since everything is through hole (no surface mount components). This contest will run for one week (July 17 – July 23, 2010) . Ending time is based on central standard time. To enter, identify the item pictured above and give an example of what can be done with it.
