Talk About an i-Universal Remote
GEAR4’s solution to the iPhone and iPod Touch’s sad lack of built-in infrared functionality comes in the form of the Unity Remote. This universal remote is an infrared hub that talks to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad via Bluetooth through a free to download app. You place it anywhere and send commands from your device through the device’s five infrared emitters, which blast out signals to you’re home theater device within its 360 degree line of site. It will be available in October, and it looks like it’ll sell for $99.
