    Saw this project on instructables only I ramped it up a bit. The leds I used couldn't be powered with just a 9v. So I hooked it up to an adjustable voltage laptop charger. This allows me to set the brightness I want. I went from barely being able to see, to being blinding. Same Brightness in each photo though.

    Thats actually pretty cool! Two of those would make a pretty decorative sensor bar :)

    That would be pretty easy, just wire a IR Led in parallel with the color leds.
