Features include:

  • Control TV, HiFi and more from Android, iPhone or Windows Phone.
  • Control devices using NEC, RC5 and SIRC protocols
  • Provides Bluetooth Low Energy service for controlling it from other devices.

A solar version was also designed to avoid having to change the battery:

Despite that Bluetooth Low Energy device uses so little of it, the battery will eventually run out. To overcome that, the old device was improved by adding a solar charger.

The design files and source code are available on GitHub:
