Though no official word has been made, FCC filings were recently unveiled, illustrating another potential remote control replacement for the iPhone or iPod touch.
Startup company, Zelfy, filed plans for a product called “Peel.” Images show a small IR port that connects to your wireless router. After downloading the “Peel” app to either your iPhone or iPod touch, users may control the devices linked with the aforementioned IR connection.
According to Engadget, the product’s tagline states: “every remote and TV guide now on your phone.” While this doesn’t provide a clear explanation, their website also shows a woman seemingly controlling her television via iPhone: we can only infer the obvious.
Keep your eyes “Peel”ed!
