Vizio Announces Remote Control App for iPhone
At CES 2010, we found another rather interesting tidbit coming down the pipeline. Your Next App could very well be a remote control for your TV, as long as you own a Vizio.
The above picture, captured by Engadget at the CES, shows off this upcoming iPhone remote control. Yet there’s no additional accessory required, from what we can tell. How can this be possible then? Turns out most new Vizios are coming packed with WiFi accessibility; thus the remote controls makes sure that it connects to the same network and presto, you’re connected wirelessly to your TV!
Clicking on the link below will take you to a video taken at CES that shows a couple parts of the remote. As far as I can tell, it seems like a rather basic version and is likely still in development stages. So we may still be a couple months away from seeing the real deal. Still, keep holding your breath, Vizio owners — the iPhone is about to become a whole lot cooler for you. Ready to have something new to show off to your Blackberry friends?
