Finally iPhone and iPod Touch users can control their AV gear with their handset.  Magic? No, but damn close – I guess it just seems that whimsical and wonderful to me.

Called the RedEye, it’s a dock that receives commands from your iPhone via WiFi and relays them over infrared to your TV, Blu-ray player, home theater receiver or just about any A/V gear that you can think of.  Since it operates over WiFi (an RF signal that passes through walls) you can have multiple RedEyes scattered around your home enabling you to control the stereo from any where you sit.  And because the software is free and customizable, there is virtually no limit to what and how you can control your gear.

The RedEye costs $188 and includes one infrred base and some adapters for the iPod Touch and iPhone.  Check their quick product videos after the ‘leap’

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
