Power A has introduced its new Universal Remote Case for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS. Working in conjunction with the company’s free Power A Universal Remote app, the Universal Remote Case allows the iPhone 3G or 3GS to control nearly any infrared-controlled product. The case itself is a two-piece hard case offering open access to the headphone port, sleep/wake button, ring/silent switch, camera, screen, home button, and volume buttons, with the bottom piece connecting to the iPhone via dock connector to allow for app control of the built-in IR transmitter. The app lets users customize their own virtual button layouts, create macros that perform multiple tasks with a single button tap, and program the app to learn the codes of their existing remotes. Power A’s new Universal Remote Case for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS is expected to be available from the Apple Store later today and will sell for $60.
