WALTHAM, MA – (July 20, 2010) – ThinkFlood, maker of RedEye remotes for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, today announced availability of RedEye mini, the world’s most affordable and feature-rich portable universal remote adapter for Apple iOS devices.

RedEye mini, the second product in ThinkFlood’s RedEye remote line, plugs into the headphone jack of the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad – transforming it into a completely portable universal remote. RedEye mini hardware requires the RedEye app, a free download from the App Store.

RedEye mini owners can easily operate anything controlled by infrared signals anywhere they go: TVs; cable and satellite receivers; gaming consoles; Blu-ray, DVD and digital media players; and more.

“RedEye mini works so seamlessly and seems so simple in concept that it’s easy to overlook the amount of engineering that went into it,” said ThinkFlood President and Founder Matt Eagar. “Ultimately, it’s that surface simplicity which makes it wonderful – just drop the mini into your headphone jack and immediately you have a powerful, customizable remote that goes beyond systems costing several times as much. It’s also a lot of fun.”
