2021-07-21 (W) 24EngLaserGrid Wiimote teardown

Somewhere in my bins of parts, I have an IR positioning camera from DFRobot. They have been out of stock for a while, but I should be able to scavenge some from old Wii remotes. Since I'm going to have more than four lasers, I'll need several cameras. I opened a controller, and I was surprised at how few components there were on the board. I didn't try to identify them since I was only interested in the camera. The other part I am interested in is the filter at the front that blocks visible light. I will need a hot air station, or similar, to remove the camera.
