ThinkFlood has introduced its new RedEye Universal Remote Control peripheral for the iPhone and iPod touch. The RedEye is a small IR transmitter box featuring Wi-Fi and a built-in Dock for charging an iPhone, iPhone 3G, or iPod touch. Users download the RedEye software application—currently in public beta—to their device and connect to the RedEye transmitter box via Wi-Fi. The application then allows the user to control nearly any IR-sensing home entertainment equipment directly from the application, with device-specific screens that only display relevant buttons, as well as macro shortcuts for activities such as “Watch TV” or “Watch a Movie.” ThinkFlood’s RedEye Universal Remote Control solution for the iPhone and iPod touch is available during the beta period for $119; the hardware will increase in price to $149 when the software leaves beta testing this fall.
