AnalysIR featured on Arduino blog for Dublin Maker Faire

New infrared applications using Arduino at Mini MakerFaire Dublin (tomorrow!)

Here is an extract of the Arduino blog post featuring AnalysIR. Click the the link above to visit the Arduino Blog.

The power of infrared light was widely and best appreciated with invention of television’s remote controls. The signal between a remote control handset and the device it controls, consists of pulses of infrared light, which is not visible to the human eye.

Tomorrow at MakerFaire Dublin you’ll we able to see the work of AnalysIR, a project that is taking this technology to a whole new level.

They implemented a Windows application which connects to an Arduino with the addition of an IR receiver and can decode new IR signals in a fraction of the time: no need for expensive Logic Analyzers or Oscilloscopes.

Here they are with their Indiegogo campaign:

At MakerFaire they will be showing some cool demos of what you can do with IR like generating electricity, seeing the invisible -Using iPhone & Android camera to check if TV remote is working, long range TV remote Control Demo Using Optics and many more applications for a total of 10 installations. Look out for them on Saturday!

Update: Arduino Guru, Massimo Banzi tweets for AnalysIR

We are off to the faire tomorrow, for a day of Fun  – Maker Faire that is. We are presenting 10 IR based exhibits (more later).

BanziTwitterIt has been an exciting day for us here in Dublin with the coverage on the Arduino blog. I have uploaded a screen grab from our twitter feed showing one of the Arduino founders tweeting about AnalysIR.  The blog is accessible from the Arduino website or via http://j.mp/16hAGH7 .
