Soooo... What can IR LEDs be used for?

I have three of them that I found in a Furby. What can I do with them and the rest of the Furby?

Night vision?
I realize this particular post/comment is extremely old. However, this is actually a correct as well as really smart idea for using infared l.e.d. lights. It would absolutely work. Wouldn't be that tough to do either. Find yourself a nice set of binnoculars and some really small infared L.E.D. lights and a small power source.. simply glue the infared l.e.d. lights around the edge of each lense housing of the binnoculars.. then when you have your powersource figured out and connected to the infared lights.. simply turn it on and turn off the lights to test it out. I guarantee it will work. I made something similar to this a few years ago. It's not quite like having a genuine set of 'nightvision' optics.. but for the price, its a very good alternative.

Make a simple LED torch to flash messages to passing police helicopters.
I wouldn't recommend that. ;) To say it as nice as I can.

What does it do?
I suppose (I can't open it from work, I am blocked from the site) it is an IR transmitter similar to the TV remote, but more useful and maybe even programmable.
