So i was thinking...

I want to make a remote control via infrared robot, using the infrared receiver they sell at radioshack. So like with a tv remote the robot can detect if the irled in the tv clicker is on to do a certain task like turn a servo…help me with some examples please?

Don't buy from radioshack. It's 35 cents from a fellow forum member here.

There are many examples here and in the playground, it's actually quite easy to do.

I picked up the IR LED pair from radio shack yesterday and plan on playing around with it the next couple of days. I'll probably order one of those other IR LEDs from that site too.
