VooMote OneIf you know someone who can’t be bothered picking up the remote to change the channel, it might be worth pointing them in the direction of VooMote One.

 

VooMote One is a new gadget that converts a user’s iPhone into a universal controller that works on all major models of television.

 

The device is a sleeve that fits over the user’s mobile and allows them to choose a program or flip between functions, and make calls.

 

The device also allows the user to group together different appliances, such as a DVD player and stereo.

 

According to Berlin-based manufacturing company Zero1.tv, the device works with wireless technology and captures more than 30,000 infrared cords and thousands of electronic devices.

 

Zero1.tv says VooMote’s star feature is the Room Control function, which allows users to group devices according to their location.

 

Users can also create custom layouts, which manage specific controls of each device so they can control many things with just the touch of a button.

 

“VooMote One is the only like-product on the market right now that makes set-up effortless, reduces clutter and streamlines the control of all of your devices with your iPhone,” Zero1.tv said in a statement.

 

As the iPhone continues to dominate the smartphone market, what other complementary concepts can you think of?
