Smartphones are powerful pieces of technology that can control a limitless number of devices, but the 'riimo' helps to enable them to control older technology by turning them into an IR remote.

The 'riimo' fits into the 3.5mm headphone jack on smartphones to instantly enable users to control their TV, DVD player or virtually any device that uses an infrared remote.

The 'riimo' is priced at just $8 and available for preorder on Indiegogo, and is controlled via an accompanying app that allows users to setup the device with different products and control them. The 'riimo' can turn a smartphone or a tablet into an IR remote and will provide up to 15-meters of range when in use with a compatible iOS or Android device.
