Topic: Hacking the optical reader on a DVD player (Read 2978 times) previous topic - next topic


I recently came across an old DVD/VHS player.  Is there a way to hook the optical camera from the DVD player to my Arduino UNO board and use it as a camera or other kind of sensor?


It isn't a camera, just a photodiode with very close focus.

Not really sure, just wondering what my options are.
