IR Pens / Quick RadioShack pen
« on: January 27, 2008, 03:51:21 PM »
I got my Wii Remote in the mail (I don't actually own a Wii) and stopped by RadioShack to see if they had appropriate parts for an LED pen.  While the LED itself is a lower output than the recommended device, I thought I'd give it a try.  I also picked up some 1.4V Zinc-air hearing aid batteries for powering it and their sub-mini momentary SPST switch.  Here's the result:



I'll have to wait until tomorrow to try it all out (I don't have any Bluetooth capable computers at home), so we'll see how well this LED works.  I confirmed with my digital camera that the pen is working, but it isn't especially bright.
