    If you want to see some nice IR stuff look here: http://www.electro-tech-online.com/custompdfs/2012/08/IR_MADE_EASY.pdf

    And if you want the Android application, look here: http://www.keene.co.uk/electronic/keene-electronics/keene-ir-commander-matrix/IRCM.html

    AND, if you want to PLAY on your own there is this module: http://www.tauntek.com/tinyir-learning-ir-remote-control-receiver.htm
    It, at least removes you from having to deal with the IR issue. I have this module, but never used it.

    Take a look at www.picaxe.com, for, it may be an inexpensive way to handle the logic. I also have one of these, but never used it.
