RedEye Mini Turns iPhone into Universal Remote Control
A new accessory from ThinkFlood aims to transform your iPhone into a universal remote control without being cumbersome.
Called the RedEye mini, the device plugs into your iPhone's headphone jack. Once plugged in, it allows you to control any device that receives infrared signals, including TVs , DVD players, stereos, cable boxes and similar electronics .
Another advantage of the RedEye mini is that unlike other iPhone accessories, it leaves the iPhone's charging port open, meaning less connecting and reconnecting of cords.
The RedEye mini can control devices up to 30 feet away and runs on the iPhone or iPod Touch's internal battery , so no external power is required.
ThinkFlood plans to sell the RedEye Mini for $50 this spring but has given no specific details about the release date.
