Default Random Find: Powerswitch tail 2

Just stumbled on this in my quest to find the end of the internet:

http://www.adafruit.com/products/268

Its is the Powerswitch Tail 2, a short power cable with a built in DC controlled relay. Seems like it would be really useful to someone controlling a fridge or pump with a low voltage DC circuit.

I was thinking about using this in my fermentation controller/chest freezer project, I would rather not mess with the AC. I was going to use Xbees to talk wirelessly to the freezer. From the computer you could program fermentation profiles and other stuff I haven't thought of yet. Now to just get started.

ECC has been carrying these for a little while now.

I use one to control my keezer with my BCS unit.

If you're thinking Xbees, think JeeNodes instead. Unless you already have the Xbees that is

Jeenodes give you all that sexy wireless-ness, in a slick little arduino-compatible package at a much cheaper price point.
