For every million or so pointless, sacrificial iPhone accessories, we get one good one. And the L5 Remote infrared adapter may just be that one accessory.
The idea couldn't be simpler: You plug the L5 Remote adapter into your iPhone's dock connector, it draws from the iPhone's battery to blast IR, and with the addition of bundled universal remote app, your iPhone can suddenly change the channel on pretty much any TV, cable/sat box or Front Row compatible device up to 30 feet away.
We've seen iPhone remote solutions before, but nothing has been nearly this elegant. Priced at $50 whenever it's actually available, the L5 remote could finally give us one remote to control them all. [L5 Tech via The Loop via Silicon Alley Insider via DVICE]
