Roll-your-own sensor code (for advanced users)
For the more advanced PIC programmer, the IRCF360 is pin-for-pin compatible with the PICkit2 programmer (from Microchip), which is available from many distributors such as Farnell. See Mircochip's website for more details -> here
With a spare PIC16F88 chip (also from our shop), why not try to roll-your-own sensor codes. For example, make a 3-Dimensional dynamic midi sensor that plays music or a drum machine based on the sensor reading. See example midi code and firmware to try -> here. or perhaps your own infrared remote control routines?
