This IR Receiver/Sensor used the GP1UX311QS IR Receiver from Sharp. Give your Arduino the power to see and respond to signals from an IR remote control!
This tiny sensor tunes into the standard 38KHz modulated IR signals produced by almost all IR remotes!
All these years, you've wondered why you still have the remote control for that VCR you got rid of 10 years ago; no, finially, you can put that old remote to use as a wireless keypad for your Arduino!
Simple to hook up and easy to get running (only 3 leads and 3VDC). See this tutorial: http://BIT.LY/9XVxaB
