Hello, I'm interested in the infrared capabilities of puckJS. I noticed that the board includes an infrared LED, but I can't tell from the pictures if the case covers up this LED? Does the case need to be off in order to use infrared?
The case does cover the Infrared, but it doesn't stop it completely - it just diffuses it.
You'll need to be within 0.5m of the device you want to control, but then it's wireless - so usually it's not too difficult to put it within range. You can take the case off (or cut a hole) to increase range, but then the Infrared is very directional so you'll need to have the flat face of the Puck facing the device you want to control, which can be more difficult,
Great description! Thanks Gordon!
