More so than the SeeLaser-Red, an unlikely way a diamond thief will find out about the captive powers of I-CubeX. Pierces large distances with invisible infra-red beam. To find the infra-red dot that is invisible to the naked eye, look through a smartphone's camera at the surface where the beam is pointing at and you should see a violet dot.
- Use as trigger beam together with Flash sensor. Laserharp anyone ? Create a virtual cage for dancers. Or detect intruder, visitor, dog, cat, mouse .... movements.
- Make every move count and add a TapTiled floor, some MoveOn and/or ReachClose sensors. You might need to rethink your choreography.

- Can be powered directly by the 5V power of any digitizer but when using with the USB-microDig actuator outputs (top row of the connector for sensors and actuators), a circuit needs to be added to provide the required power.
- To find the infra-red dot that is invisible to the naked eye, look through a smartphone's camera at the surface where the beam is pointing at and you should see a violet dot.
- The size and intensity of the infra-red dot can be changed by adjusting the focus, which can be set by rotating the lens at the front using a screwdriver.
- Caution ! Never point the beam at the eye, stare into the beam nor look at the beam through a microscope or other lenses. Inform yourself about laser safety.
