Projects I am currently contemplating:

1. Using an Arduino and a moisture detector so that I know when to water my plants: Garduino: Gardening + Arduino and DIY Arduino-Based Plant Moisture Sensor.

2. Modifying a camera for infrared: IR Modification of the Nikon 4300.

3. Using a pinhole camera to make solargraphs: Solagraph Instructions.

IR modification looks awesome. Shame it doesn't manage heat vision, but still cool to be able to capture colours we can't see.

Ooh, that's a bargain if it works. No idea about the glass; sounds like you need to find a tool for cutting glass... hardware was never my strong point :)

The instructable says they cut it from picture glass, so I think it must be 3mm thick. 0.3 would be really hard to handle without it breaking. Old-fashioned glaziers would let you have a bit, probably cut it to size for you too.

The infrared filter inside the 4300 is so poor that you'll be able to great infrared photos just by holding a Hoya R72 over the lens whilst you take a photo. I wouldn't bother with that time-consuming conversion personally.

Hehe. Yeah definitely get the filter. It will work on any camera, and infrared photography is great fun. :)
