Ok, here is my IR-Pen.
The whole pen is self made.

How long did it take to make?... do you have the specs.?


Bet you could sell those if you could keep up with orders.

I think it took 3h to build it.

It runs with a single 1.2V nimh AAA battery and the LED is direct driven.

The whole pen is made of aluminium.
Since I don't own a turning lathe I used an old drill machine.
Well I don't think I have the time to build more of these. Besides there are a lot of cheap pens for a few $ on the market.

Here are more pics
