Idea #2: Implemented


I’m happy to let you know that the remote sans-IR idea has been more or less implemented. I’m a bit embarrassed to let you know that it was implemented before I posted it. Check it out at the link to a Wired.com article about how remotes are slowly but surely shifting towards an RF transmission system, which easily travels through cabinets and the like.

Bonus:

It turns out that this exact idea is already a product, released circa 2005. Kudos to the inventors for avoiding my attention for at least five years.
