L5 Remote

A new device and app turning the iPhone into a universal remote

First previewed back in January at CES and now finally available for purchase, the L5 Remote transforms iPhones or iPod Touches into all-in-one clickers for any home entertainment system, putting the end of playing hide-and-seek with remote controls in sight.

Using a simple plug-in accessory and companion app, within minutes you can program your very own touch-screen remote to channel surf, play DVDs, record with DVRs or operate almost any other IR-controlled device.


The L5 allows for arranging and assigning buttons—while banishing those that get in the way—with drag-and-drop simplicity. Since it's not powered by Wi-Fi or a separate power source, you can simply plug it in and go.

Download the free app on iTunes or from L5's website, where you can also order the hardware ($50).
