Subject: contest #2 : my entry
After reading the contest definition, I just found something that
I'm sure is gonna be a winner...
here is an ascii-art of the project :
| | | |
----|eth |----| video |-- to TV
| | | text |
| sx52 | | generator |
| board | | (contest #1) |
| | |
| | |
| +----- phone line +-- video in
+-->|--+ IR led(s)
/// (other sensors, such as tv on)
here is the concept...
the device is hooked
* to the phone line (caller id)
* to the video generator (modified for the occasion, see below)
* to some ir-leds
* to the home/office network
possibilities include :
* getting caller-id info and sending it to a computer
* drawing text on the tv (the caller id info, or whatever is
sent to the proper UDP port.
* remote controlling the various A/V equipment with commands
sent via the ethernet.
a daemon on one of the computers on the network would control
what the device.
the device may include some automatic things, like turn the TV on
and show callerid info automatically and then turn the tv off if
it was off previously.
eventually include also an IR receiver to remote control some other
things through the network.
