A project log for Turn a cigarette lighter into an IR Nikon remote

Take a cigarette lighter, an AVR microcontroller (ATtiny13), and an IR LED. Wire all together. Now, you can remotely control your Nikon camera.

The easiest way will be to carry 2-3 remotes, each one with a different auto-repeat timer (hardcoded) set for 1 minute, 10 minutes and 1 hour.

Currently, the lighter switch also cut the batteries. Another way will be to put the MCU in standby, and never cut the power, so the lighter switch could be used to program the timelapse timer.
