Power A iPhone Case Transforms Into Universal Remote Control Via App

It's not the first peripheral that turns an iPhone into a universal remote control, but this Power A case means you don't have to slip it off when you've stopped using it at home—it's got two functions.

The app is free to download for both the iPhone and iPod Touch, and provides the interface for controlling any IR-equipped device in your house. The case meanwhile, has the IR transmitter and looks like a discreet offering from Griffin—not too big and bulky, in other words. It'll go for $60 when it goes on sale soon, and as with all iPhone apps, there's the very real possibility of OTA updates to add more functions.

It's also very similar to the Fastmac iV Plus we saw at Macworld, except slightly cheaper. [Power A via SlashGear via Geeky-Gadgets]
