Very popular, of course I already watched all videos of his but mostly for entertainment, nice channel but I found noting particular of use for myself>>2807>𝚈𝚘𝚞'𝚍 𝚙𝚛𝚘𝚋𝚊𝚋𝚕𝚢 𝚑𝚊𝚟𝚎 𝚋𝚎𝚝𝚝𝚎𝚛 𝚕𝚞𝚌𝚔 𝚊𝚜𝚔𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝚊 𝚍𝚎𝚍𝚒𝚌𝚊𝚝𝚎𝚍 𝚌𝚘𝚖𝚖𝚞𝚗𝚒𝚝𝚢 𝚕𝚒𝚔𝚎: 𝚑𝚝𝚝𝚙𝚜://𝚕𝚊𝚜𝚎𝚛𝚙𝚘𝚒𝚗𝚝𝚎𝚛𝚏𝚘𝚛𝚞𝚖𝚜.𝚌𝚘𝚖/ 𝚘𝚛 𝙳𝙼𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝚜𝚘𝚖𝚎𝚘𝚗𝚎 𝚠𝚑𝚘 𝚜𝚎𝚎𝚖𝚜 𝚝𝚘 𝚔𝚗𝚘𝚠 𝚊 𝚕𝚘𝚝 𝚊𝚋𝚘𝚞𝚝 𝚕𝚊𝚜𝚎𝚛𝚜.
Seems like a cool forum, yet has no category for any kind of IR, but I'll keep it in mind if I need it in the future.>>2808>I don't know what power you are looking for but before buying please make sure you have a pair of protection googles rated for your laser power. IR is invisible and reflects in weird ways, plus sellers like to lie about output power. Very risky to toy with above 5mw - eye surgery costs 10.000€+. Goggles are just 50€.
For my use case I'm happy with no more than 5mW, even then it's not meant to operate near humans, also read on some manufacturers page that at 1450nm+ the lasers are semi-eye safe, having something to do with it not being able to reach your retina or something.

Where have I seen this before
>I had no luck with that. Maybe if you get a group buy and contact a supplier with a order quantity of 20+? The Laser Pointer Forums have a section dedicated to that. I'd also try asking them for help.
At least now I'm sure not to waste my time and hopes. A group buy seems like the only way, but I don't know anyone that might need such a thing, and that laserforum doesn't even have an IR category.
This is the closest to what I am looking for, but as noted previously I'm based outside of burgerland therefore huge shipping costs will applyhttps://www.mi-lasers.com/product/5mw-1470nm-mitsubishi-ml920j16s-2/>>2809>Something that's been on me todo list: see if its possible to write an n64 homebrew
Never owned a nintendo lol, but good luck
>OT, I suppose you can source parts from a broken consumer thing.
The only thing that comes to mind would be old/broken medical equipment because this is the most common use for this band, but they never sell for cheap, and if it's considered "broken" then its most likely because its main component, the laser, is in some way damaged. Might be a nice way to salvage useless med equipment garbage but not laser diodes.
