Thanks a lot. i am a bachelor student who study in Digital Media . it is so hard to get a IR LED (Vishay TSAL 6400) in Guangzhou(capital in Canton) till to now. I try to order from internet. but i have to make a big order. it's quite cool to make some thing like these. I like it so much and i am planning to build up my own project with wiimote and arduino. hope can contact with u all.

You can try buying from me as well ;)

Cheaper than most - I make no profit out of it and so far ~100 diodes are shipped worldwide

send me a PM if you are interested

Greetings from a high schooler in Beijing!

The IR Led doesn't have to be the exact same one. Various kinds of Led available everywhere would work perfectly (tested in Beijing).

I'm working on the IR Laser now.

Btw, you can't open the link due to something called censorship...

Hey all! Glad to see you here.

Buying from UndCon or someone similar is the way to go if you've got problems with ordering parts in your country. Tons cheaper and reliable shipping. If you run into a problem, I know UndCon for sure is willing to work it out specifically for you.

Hope all goes well!
