1- if you are not a programmer or do not want to learn about programming *and* microcontroller: not much. else...got something that work with a serial cable? (db9) you could implement an ir control instead! or... build a basic remote control and send it to a microcontroller that could control say... a toilet flush... a door... an alarm... anything. that give you an idea...

receive some infrared - of course! Unless you have a project in mind, theres not a lot a person would do with one.
