IRToWebThingy: IR remote to WiFi adapter with ESP8266

I made an IRToWebThingy that reads common (and some not so common) infrared remote control codes and makes them available to any devices on the local WiFi network so you can script various things. For instance, you can fly a pig in Minecraft using a Syma helicopter remote! The Thingy works with usual DVD/TV-type remotes, as well as Great Wolf Lodge Magiquest wands and some IR helicopter remotes.”
