A company called New Kinetix is unveiling an attachment that turns your iPhone or Touch into a Universal Remote. Useful? Nah, since most of us don’t want to leave the iPhone lying around on the coffee table and then poke at it with Cheeto powdered hands while we watch Dr. Who. There a reason why standalone universal remotes exists. It’s because remotes get beaten up and broken.
We’ll see more of this at CES, but I’m not dancing a jig just yet. Besides, the RedEye from ThinkFlood seems like a more complete solution.
