Universal Gadgets

Smartphones and controllers made for lazy living

Implications - In the movie “Click” Adam Sandler’s character finds a special universal remote that controls everything and anything; as outrageous as the idea may seem, we may be closer to this reality than we think. Some smartphones are being equipped with the ability to control TVs and stereos, while remotes are becoming steadily more “universal”—some concepts are even designed to control your air conditioner and light fixtures. Convenience is an important consideration for today’s consumers and these universal gadgets definitely serve this need.
