Universal remote pillow

Posted in Remotes by Conner Flynn on November 15th, 2010

This pillow will let you channel surf, but not rest your head at the same time. It’s a pillow. With a remote crammed inside. The folks at Brookstone have turned this dream into a reality. They say that this unit can be programmed to work with over 500 devices.

Even better, there’s a power-saving auto shutoff feature that can be overridden by your squeezing. It’s probably not very comfortable as a pillow, but for $29.95 it’s a fun remote. It will require 2 AAA batteries.

Leopard solar-powered universal remote

Posted in Remotes by Conner Flynn on April 1st, 2010

If you want to go green with your remote, Powerplus has just introduced the Leopard, a solar-powered universal remote that can charge its internal lithium-ion battery using either direct sunlight or artificial light. That means if you keep it facing up in a lit room, you will never have to worry about running out of batteries again. We like that a whole lot.

The dimensions on this remote are pretty standard at 7.3in x 1.9in x 0.7in. Sure it could be better looking, more stylish, but at £9.99 each I’m not going to complain.

The Clicker adds a bottle opener to the side of a universal remote, so you can open your brew and continue to channel surf. However this won’t help you if you drink canned beer. Too bad for you guys. I’ll be kicking back and relaxing.

RedEye: Turn your iPhone into a Universal RemoteRedEye is a device that will turn your iPhone or iPod Touch into a fully functional universal remote that can be used to control a wide range of equipment. Anything from your HDTV, Cable Box, and even your DVD player or Blu-ray player.

Here’s how it works. Your iPhone or iPod touch sends commands to the receiver unit via WiFi, then the signals are converted into infrared and sent to your AV equipment. Since everyone and their eighty year old grandmother already has an iPhone, this could truly be one remote to rule them all.

It features a total of 13 “magical functions” on your TV in all. The wand is battery powered and they even throw in the batteries.
