Month of January is hosting CES, the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow. We expect lots of goodies to come out this year, and one of them is the L5 Remote from L5 Technology. This is a $50 accessory that will be paired with a free app , and it will turn your iPhone and iTouch into a universal remote.
The accessory plugs into the iPhone or iPod touch’s dock connector. It measures 1.25 x .85 inches. Using a free app you’ll be able to download from the App Store, you drag and drop buttons into place to control your home entertainment devices.
The accessory works without batteries and will control any number of devices within about 30 feet, according to the manufacturer. It doesn’t require independent batteries, Wi-Fi or external power to function.
