USB UIRT – give your PC remote control


The USB-UIRT. So, plug this puppy into your desktop or laptop and turn an $x000 piece of hardware into the world’s largest and most expensive universal remote control. Or not. As you like. Anyhoo, yes it does look mind-numbingly boring, but it actually could be useful in a home automation, geek cred sort of way. It’s just a shame that it hasn’t got a go-faster red stripe and sunburst on the top, because that would *certainly* make it look more exciting. Oh yes. $50.00.

 The USB-UIRT combines the capability of other PC-based IR Receivers with a fully-featured IR Transmitter (sometimes referred to as a ‘Blaster’). This allows your PC to not only receive codes from the remote controls you already have, but also to control your equipment (or any device with an IR receiver).
