Lego NXT Laser Mod

ZeWrestler sent me a link for this cool Lego NXT light sensor module so I thought I would post it here.

Looks like the 'sensor' is a simple IR detection module that uses a simple emitter and detector LED pair ( http://shop.lego.com/product.asp?p=9844 ). This hack takes the module and replaces the emitter/detector with a laser taken from a "Microsoft US" (WTF??) remote control and laser pointer device. Not too sure why this individual would want to replace a light sensor with a laser with no detection abilities.

I will keep this remote/pointer in mind since it seems like a good source for a low power laser emitter.
