Review - Thinkflood's Redeye: A True iPhone Infrared Remote



ThinkFlood's RedEye

The idea of an app for the iPhone that allows you to control your A/V equipment is not new, but Thinkflood is unique in that it adds hardware into the mix.  RedEye by Thinkflood attempts to convert the iPhone into an activity based learning infrared remote that is competative with the biggest players in the industry.  The infrared extender is similar in form factor to the standard Apple charging cradle but packs some specialized hardware.  Inside the base station are multiple infrared LEDs that when connected to the iPhone via Wi-Fi allow you to control just about anything with an IR sensor.  At an MSRP of $188 this device is priced in the middle of high end activity based radio frequency remote controls.  Will it be the "ultimate evolution of the remote control?"
