Universal Remote Control, Inc. (URC) has introduced the new RF+Pak, which combines the MasterControl RF10 Remote with the PowerBlaster Base Station. The upshot of all this is a remote that can be pointing in any direction and still operate the component you choose. The remote emits a multidirectional RF signal through air and solid objects alike up to 100 feet. So, if you’re in the living room and realize you forgot to turn off the TV in the kitchen, just press a button. And then wonder if you really need a TV in the kitchen.
MacroPower and SimpleSound features on the remote can turn on several components at once or control the volume of sources without built-in volume control, respectively. The device will work with televisions, projectors, satellite receivers, cable boxes, DVD players and recorders, audio receivers, lighting controls, media center PCs, iPods, Xboxes and XM Radios, among others. The RF+Pak is available from Best Buy (initially) beginning this month for $119.99.
