IR remotes are great! They are great for selfies; they are great for long exposures where you don’t want to move the camera while pressing the shutter and they are great for controlling a camera via a Smarphone. The only thing is that you can never find one when you need it.
Ilya Titov was frustrated enough to make the word smallest DSLR IR remote* that also doubles as a keychain using an Attiny85 microcontroller and a few other random electronics.
The instructions have the PCB layout, the list of components and the relevant code. Being such a small project it is a perfect candidate for any photographers who wants to take on makering.
Best of all, the remote contains an easter egg in the form of a logo, which would only be possible if you actually made one your own.
For the full build, as well as a pretty creative use for a printbot, head over to Ilya’s post.
* We have not really checked them all, actually, I think it is bigger than some, but that only means the awesomeness has more space to expand.
