We have designed a programmable infrared receiver which can utilize any pulse coded IR signal to play Connect Four from a remote distance.

 The programmable infrared receiver device we have created can decode any pulse-width modulated signal of an IR remote control, store it in non-volatile memory, and then recognize that signal again the next time it comes to existence.  We have also coded Connect Four which can be played remotely with one or more remote controls to demonstrate the versatility of our receiver.
