Thank you for the opportunity to respond to the excellent and informative letter by Dr. David Hunter.

For our attempt at Drive by Photoscreening,1 the wire-and-opaque-plastic shielded sufficient ambient light so that blinq could get a reading outdoors, but the performance of blinq suffered compared to conventional indoor use. We surmised this may have been due to the lack of facial view for the aiming beams, but we agree with Dr. Hunter that disruption of infrared light could also have been the culprit.
