Wireless Infrared Link

Data & Observations
           After all that pain-staking work of building a transmitter and receiver for this wireless infrared link, let's give it a test and see how things work. The video below shows me turning on both systems and then testing them out.

           The video should convince you that information is indeed being transferred over the infrared wireless link and that I'm not somehow fooling you =P. When the transmitter or receiver is moved outside of the line-of-sight, the system no longer works. This is an unfortunate characteristic of IR transmission, but it is a small price to pay for how easy it is to implement.
