Hack a Day user Hari Wiguna created this DIY TV Remote Control in response to his elderly father not being able to comfortably press the buttons on a traditional remote. Featuring buttons that are spread apart and easily identifiable because of varying colors and shapes, this DIY TV Remote Control is also energy conscious and won't drain power when not in use.

It's interesting how although this DIY TV Remote Control is so complex on the inside that the exterior is so streamlined. While Wiguna's intentions were aimed at helping his father out, the designer might have created a simple device that harkens back to the golden era of television when remote controls were simpler; we might see more streamlined devices on the mainstream market in the near future as a result.
