There are two projects for experimenting with Infrared sensor. First experiment is about Infrared tester and second experiment is about controlling LED with PWM signals generated from IR remote.
We have just launched a Crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo for AnalysIR - IR Decoder & Analyzer. Currently we support 17 IR protocols and are looking for more to add as part of the campaign. Suggestions Welcome!
