MoreControl Reveals First Photos and Video of ThinkFlood's RedEye mini Portable Universal Remote for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
ThinkFlood Software Developer Lost Prototype RedEye mini at Local Bar After Field-Testing
WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - July 6, 2010) - MoreControl.com (http://morecontrol.com/), the leading source for remote control and home automation news, today published photos and video of ThinkFlood's never-before-seen portable universal remote for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad -- RedEye mini.
The Complete Lost RedEye mini Saga:
- This is ThinkFlood's next iPhone, iPad, iPod touch remote -- RedEye mini
- How ThinkFlood lost the RedEye mini
- How ThinkFlood conceals prototype RedEye minis
ThinkFlood (http://thinkflood.com/) had not planned to share photos or video of the RedEye mini ($49) until after the product launch later this summer. Unfortunately for them, MoreControl obtained a prototype RedEye mini that one of ThinkFlood's software developers lost after field-testing it at a local bar.
RedEye mini, the second product in ThinkFlood's RedEye remote line, is a small adapter that plugs into the headphone jack of the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The mini works with ThinkFlood's RedEye app, a free download from the App Store and iTunes.
Once the hardware goes on sale, RedEye mini owners will be able to use their iPhones, iPads and iPod touch devices to quickly operate anything controlled by infrared, everywhere they go: TVs, DVD and Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, stereos, gaming consoles, etc.
We should probably mention the fact that MoreControl is actually ThinkFlood's blog about remote control and home automation technology and trends. While our lost RedEye mini saga isn't based on actual events, the utmost care was taken to share accurate information about the soon-to-be-released RedEye mini. We were also careful to use only real people, dates, names, locations, images, and footage of the RedEye mini in action.
MoreControl's Complete Lost RedEye mini saga is both a tribute to Gizmodo for giving us The Complete Lost iPhone Saga, and a vehicle for sharing facts, photos, and video of ThinkFlood's next RedEye remote, the RedEye mini.
