If you’ve lost the remote between the deep cushions of the sofa again, fear not, the FLPR Universal Remote by New Potato Technologies for many of Apple’s latest products is able to control TVs, cable and satellite boxes, CD and DVD players, blu ray players, receivers, lights and more.
In total, the remote comes pre-programmed with over 80,000 remote control codes that are frequently updated to recognize new IR codes through the App Store. Once the FLPR Universal Remote, which is connected through the iPhone’s dock at the base, is inserted, simple, customizable skins with their own style of buttons control the various functions that a normal remote could.
Once the preset IR codes are installed, each one can be named and personalized so as to correctly configure each function to the corresponding device. The device uses less than 1 mA, so the iPhone’s battery remains largely unaffected.
