2021-05-19 (W) Wearable Macro Keyboard BackOfTheHand BotH IR LED activation

I wanted to figure out why my infrared LEDs were not activating. I checked my initialization code, where I tell the microcontroller how to treat each pin. The auxiliary switches were not declared, so I added them, but my LED outputs were accurate. When I went back to the switching code, I realized I was focusing on the wrong pair of lights, so I corrected the mistake.

The following test lit the LEDs, and I saw lots of activity on the receiver. I tried to block the infrared light with my finger and some metallic foil, but there were still significant values. A television remote didn't seem to affect it, but when I pointed my IR camera at the receiver, it drowned out the signal completely. Essentially, I used the spotlight as an IR jammer.
