nice :)

but arent the LED's visible to human eyes?

Nope, you cant see infrared lighting. You would definitely show up like the sun to someone else who had night vision though, as NVGs can see the infrared lights (Supposing you would be using this for airsoft/paintball)

he used IR LEDs which emit infrared light not visible to the human eye its what your remote uses

kips got it together, just a little more tinker time

Will any viewfinder work, or do I need to use one from the specific model camera he used?

how much do you want if you would built me one? :) ,
