I have an idea for an arduino project, but I can't find anything that resembles it. Answered
I had this idea for a spy gadget, but I cannot find out anything about some of the functions I want it to have. I wanted to take an arduino uno and first off give it an Infrared LED and program it so that it can drown out all infrared signals by continuously blasting IR when a button is pressed. A universal jammer if you will. Second off I want it to be able to use an infrared sensor to detect infrared light when the function is active, and display the intensity of such IR on a LED board. Third of all I want it to be able to activate a burning laser LED to help start fires when camping, a sort of laser swiss army knife if you will. Fourth I want to be able to stick turn on a small LED for light. I was looking to see how each thing could be activated by a different button. I have a Keyes KT0003 arduino kit with no instructions on how to actually use the thing. Aside from the laser LED which I know doesn't come with the kit, are the infrared based functions feasible? All I want with the infrared is to be able to detect it and then just drown it out completely with the LED, I don't want to block any specific function. I just want to block IR in general.
I also wanted to make an infrared universal transmitter out of it, but all of the things I saw relied on the arduino as a receiver. I wanted to be able to use the arduino as a sort of sonic screwdriver, able to activate any IR based device and control it, by pushing buttons attached to the arduino. Like I said though, everything was using the thing as a receiver, I want to turn it into a handheld transmitter able to control anything with a IR receiver.
Here is a link to the kit I have, I'm sorry if it doesn't describe it very well.
