    Yeah, I noticed that. The video doesn't really show it well, as you can always see infrared with a camera. The sensor is visible to the human eye now

    You definitely cant see my sensor glowing red like that on my iPhone 4 running iOS 4.1. Thats a pretty weird video..

    I'll be the first one to ask.

    Is there anyway to be able to hack the sensor to use it as a notification light?

    Even with 4.1's intensity and in the dark it REALLY wouldn't be bright enough - it's not even close.

    Yeah, but there's no other way to demonstrate it. Note, however, the side by side with the 3GS you can't see the sensor. So as a relative reference, the iPhone 4 appears significantly stronger.
