Last year Janet told us about the Sideclick crowdfunding campaign for the snap-on universal remote sidecar for several streaming media devices like Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Nexus Player and Roku. As a reminder, Sideclick is a slim universal remote attachment that snaps onto existing media streaming device remotes and adds programmable IR buttons, giving streamers the ability to control their TV’s power, volume, and input source without needing a second remote control. The original Sideclick campaign did not meet its funding goal, but they followed up with a second campaign that was successful. They have recently finished shipping rewards to their backers and are now selling the Sideclick for $29.99 through their site, Amazon and Best Buy. A Sideclick for the fourth generation Apple TV is coming soon.
