Beacon Universal Remote System

Why leave a bunch of remotes hanging out on your coffee table when you could just use your phone? The Beacon Universal Remote System ($80) is a battery-powered box with a built-in IR transmitter that works with Dijit's Universal Remote app to allow for full control of a myriad of home theater and other products directly from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, with minimal setup thanks to a built-in database of device codes.
