Remember that movie “Click” with Adam Sandler? Well, we might just be closer to having a universal “universal” remote control real soon. But for now, one pretty good remote is the RedEye Mini, a small device that can be connected to your iPhone, iPod, or iPad through the headphone jack to provide universal remote capabilities can control your TV, Stereo, Cable Box, DVD Player and many other devices that receive standard signals.
Just plug it in and you’re ready to go. Batteries are not required and because of its online infrared code database, you can control devices even without the original remote on hand. It provides activity-based control, customizable button layouts and multi-touch and motion gestures that are applicable up to 30 feet away. It comes with its own carrying case and can be easily carried anywhere.
