Hey guys, Project 2 has been posted!
Overview: This project involves taking input text from the arduino serial window and automatically encoding them (to make them robust to errors in transmission) & sending to another computer via a modulated laser or IR signal. Data is received through a photodiode module. The posted instructable should be enough to get you started and I plan on adding a video and more pictures / schematics to it as I go.
