    INVISIBLE LIGHT

    » 3D, TECH, VIDEO  

    I spent the weekend wiring together a couple of infrared remote controls to build a system that will trigger the shutters of 2 cameras simultaneously (part of my ongoing adventures in 3D photography). I plan to post more about this project soon.

    But Chris Shen has accomplished a much more impressive feat of IR remote hacking — he’s hooked up 625 discarded remote controls to create a working television display:

    Of course the light from the remotes is infrared, so it can’t be seen with the naked eye. And it looks like it would probably take a display at least twice as big to get a really coherent picture. Still, an ingenious achievement. Read more about the piece, titled INFRA, at Create Digital Motion.
