My Tessel 2 is on way !! and am looking to create a IR remote from it. BUT, the link here http://www.seeedstudio.com/depot/Tessel-IR-Module-p-2224.html for the IR module says sold out What are my other options to use an IR module with Tessel ?
I emailed Seeed Studio directly to see when they will be back in stock. I'll let you know as soon as I get an answer.
In the meantime, if you were feeling like you wanted to get your hands dirtier, you could buy emitters and detectors from Sparkfun. I wrote a blog post a couple of years ago that explains how the IR protocol works.
Thanks Jon,I am certainly a noob in terms of hardware, will need some reading to understand your blog post.Thanks again for following-up on this.
