I’m finally designing an interactive spaceship for my kids called the STEM Capsule. The cardboard mock-up looks promising.
AKA Universal Meagbutton Remote MK III I finally was able to make another revision of the Universal Megabutton Remote. My brother-in-law Jacob has been insisting for some time for me to upgrade his current box. Unfortunately the modification of the Logitech Harmony 200 didn’t hold up to constant use over 3 years.
