The IR 7000 Communicator is a handheld device manufactured by Casio and released by Sega to the United States in 1994.
The IR 7000 acts as a personal digital assistant, and allows IR 7000 users to communicate with each other via an infra-red beam, referred to as a "Magic Beam" on the box and back of the device. The IR 7000 features include the ability to send text messages, play the one or two-player action game "Brain Drain", create pictures of contacts using 400 facial features, and save phone numbers and addresses with password protection. The device also features a scheduler, calendar, calculator, currency converter, alarm, memo pad, World map, and 10 language settings. The device retailed for $80.
The IR 7000 has much in common with the Casio Secret Sender 6000 (JD-6000) and the Casio My Super Magic Diary JD-6500, including similar button placements, shells, and modes. While not designated with a JD model number, it is likely that the IR 7000 is the successor to the JD-6500. While the IR 7000 has a battle mode, the JD-6000 has a universal television remote and the JD-6500 has a virtual pet. The IR 7000 does not feature Casio branding, however the default name for the owner of the device is "Casio".
