30 Universal Remote Controls

From Motion-Detecting Gloves to Downloadable iPhone Apps

— November 13, 2012 — Autos
Technology has granted people the liberty of lounging around lazily and leisurely, thanks to the creation of the universal remote controls. The wide range of universal remote controls are not only restricted to entertainment systems; motion-sensing gloves allow gamers to play more interactively and sci-fi fans to submerge themselves into the life of their favorite futuristic movie.

For those who like to snuggle though, a physical remote control may be more beneficial. Since these universal remote controls can get a little pricey, there are also a large pool of downloadable iPhone apps that can turn your cell into a remote. From touch-screen coffee tables to intuitive ear buds to fashionable bracelet controllers, there's a style that fits every loungers' needs.
