Sparkfun is selling a board (around $15) based on the STM VL6180 chip that measures distance based upon time-of-flight of pulses from an on chip (or at least in-package) VCSEL IR laser. Claims to have a range of 0 .. maybe 30 cm. Unfortunately it doesn't look like you can directly access the time interval measurement portion of the chip.
Do you know if they have an IR pulse front end which would be more interesting than the ultrasonic front end?
