Ray’s Touchscreen Universal Remote Will Ameliorate Your Experience of Using Electronic Appliances
How many electronic appliances do you have at your home for entertainment and other purposes? I have a smart TV, a thermostat, a fridge, a set of woofers and so on. All these devices are controlled by digital remote controls. Often it becomes frustrating to keep all the remotes at arm’s reach. Very few companies have actually tried to rectify the problem. Neeo and Ray are two such companies. Ray has attempted to cure our panic with a universal remote.
New York-based Ray has introduced Ray Super Remote: A 5.5-inch tall universal remote that performs variety of functions in highly advanced ways. The remote comes with a touchscreen with aluminum sides; its outer look isn’t less fascinating than any modern smartphone. The aforesaid remote is capable to connect users to all of the electric appliances they are using at home. To be precise, universal remote is but all-in-one.
So how does the advanced remote work? Actually sensors are placed in the aluminum sides which perform the function of informers: when the user lifts it the sensors sense the activity and inform the screen to turn on, thus the display lights up. At once a menu list of apps appears on the screen.
The shows coming from each app are systematically organized based on the genre or the nature of content. For example, beneath categories like sports, and music etc. Here you see, how great potential Ray has to provide an excellent television guide.
Indeed, the Super Remote isn’t merely a device which allows us to control our TV — it is rather a personal device with much advanced capabilities. It is beyond the basic ‘stuff.’ As noted Ray founder David Skonka: “What the product needed, what television needed, are the basics, the stuff we got used to having from the Internet.”
To give a practical illustration, (said Wired), the founder flipped channels to finally stop to see his favorite Groundhog Day. “Now Ray knows that I love two things: that I like comedy, and I like Bill Murray,” Wired quoted Skonka.
The super remote allows users to mark their favorite shows, which then appear at the top of the menu list. Skonka watches football games every Sunday so the Universal Super Remote will rank the Italian soccer above: “Which means when I pick up Ray on Sunday mornings Italian soccer will rank very high up,” Skonka says.
