DIY Apple Remote Shield for the Arduino


Step 6: Using & what to do next

Point at IR receiver & press button. Depending on the LED's you may need to move the remote around a little to get it to work. 

Note: Pairing must be disabled for this to work. (Picture 2)

Advancement Ideas:
Use a transistor to control the led's instead of just running them off Pin 13. This 'should' improve the range.
Use this to make a remote for a robot.
Add more IR Led's
Use aluminum foil to boost the range.
