So much of science fiction has been driven by an interest in things that we imagine would make our lives better, and sometime the real world delivers. The KlikR, a sleek and small Bluetooth module that makes any infrared-controlled device accessible from a smartphone, instantly brings a bit of that feeling of futurism into the home.
This coin-size gadget is an instant upgrade for your most-used electronics, and right now you can get one for just $19.99 at Cult of Mac Deals.
KlikR can be attached directly to your infrared remote or just placed nearby. Whether it’s a TV, air conditioner, stereo or whatever, you can organize and control everything from a single app via manual setup and/or a convenient QR code scanner.
It’s more than just consolidation, though. KlikR gives you the option of voice control, which adds a truly futuristic dimension to your standard electronics. And since it’s all routed through your phone, the app will also silence anything noisy running in the background should you receive a call. That’s some Jetsons-level convenience.
