Are there any other cool uses for the IR other than the TV?
I would like to see some neat things spring up, kinda like NFC. Though, I can't think of anything that uses IR other than my tv.

Ideas?

I've only ever used it for controlling my TV, receiver, and cable box. These are the most common devices you'll find with any sort of IR.

Though, anything with an IR interface could technically be controlled with it.
