I’m not an engineer or anything but WTF!
A few years ago I purchased a IRTrans from IRTrans (http://www.irtrans.com/en/index.php). Back when I was using an Apple Cube (tells you how long ago that was). Well I got out the IRTrans module the other day to start working on a new project, that I hadn’t started on yet. Every time I put my phone on my desk, the LED would blink. Didn’t think anything about it.
Then I noticed it only blinked when one of the cameras were facing the IRTrans. Odd. Of course I had to purchase and upgrade to the software, iRed2. Once I got it started I monitored IR activity and Dang it starting getting signals, repeatable signals from the iPhone.
Received one type of signal when the screen was locked, another unlocked, then another when I opened a app.. OMG!!!
Please someone else say they see that! Can Apple make their iPhone (iOS devices) into full fledge IR controllers!..
Note, You heard it here first!
