I've an IR kit if you are interested. It can receive and transmit IR. It's
purpose is used to detect objects. As the frequency changes so does the
distance as well as the type of material you are reflecting off of.
You could disable the transmitter part and then use a common TV/VCR(or
anything other IR device) IR transmitter to detect the signals. Send those
signals to a microcontroller for further processing.
Don't know if that helps.
