Hardware mod: infrared light
Authored by: calroth on Nov 27, '04 08:52:46PM
I've never tried this on an iSight, but I've had indications that like many digital cameras and webcams, the iSight is sensitive to infrared light.

You can artificially "light up" a dark scene by using infrared lights. It's invisible to the naked eye, but the iSight may pick it up. For an example of a kit which will do it: http://www1.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=AA0290

Party trick: point a TV remote control at your iSight and press a few buttons on it. What do you see?
