One of the big ideas to come out of the study was that we should add IR decoding capability to the Brainlink. Students participating in the study wanted to use the Brainlink to control not just robots but all sorts of remotely controllable devices (TVs being at the top of the list). We had earlier considered IR decoding unnecessary, because it wouldn't have been too difficult to build a library of IR codes for most major robot toys.
We've just done a board revision that adds an IR receiver, and will be implementing the feature in firmware and software soon. Once it's implemented and checks out to our satisfaction, we'll start the manufacturing and sales process. Brainlinks for sale by 2012 (and hopefully quite a bit sooner!).
