This little guy (8 x 11") was designed by researchers at Toshiba. ApriPoko, as he is referred to, is the ultimate universal remote - and not just for your television. Check this out... ApriPoko detects infrared waves when you use a remote, for your tv, for your stereo, for whatever, and he asks you what you just did. He stores the infrared signal and the details of what it does. You no longer have to use your traditional remote - just ask ApriPoko to "turn the stereo volume to 6" or "change the television to channel 37". Your wish is his command.
