Arduino-based gadget decodes Closed Captioning content from your TV, searches for the names of certain celebrities, then mutes the TV for 30 seconds when it finds them. Because the inventor is tired of the shallow drivel about these losers.

I love it. This is truly brilliant.

I posted in the comments that I want to use the same idea to mute commercials, which are much louder than the TV shows these days.
