NEC shows a Battery-less remote, gets power from button presses

19 November 2009, 6:25 am ISTFiled under: Gadgets & Tools

NEC showcased a prototype of a remote control that does not require a battery and is intended for home electric appliances.

This would definitely save on millions of AA & AAA cell batteries being used around the world, and not to mention the hassle of changing the batteries.

But as it is just a prototype, it would still take around 2 years for the commercial products to show up in the market. Till then, keep on burning those batteries.

The remote control was realized by combining
(1) a vibration-based power generation device developed by Soundpower
(2) NEC Electronics' microcomputer supporting RF remote controls that use radio waves with a frequency band ranging from several tens of MHz to several GHz to transmit and receive data and
(3) a power supply control technology that drives electronic circuits with a small amount of electricity.

TV-B-Gone: Television Eliminator

18 February 2006, 3:55 am ISTFiled under: Gadgets & Tools

Via CoolTools:

Switch off thousands of TVs using just one small remote! When you want some peace and quiet in that local bar of restaurant or office all you need to do is hit the TV-B-Gone button. I've used it in bars and clubs, and in the headquarters building of a large South African bank which had too many TV's on the walls and some of which needed to switched off. It really does work.

--Paul Parkinson

[When you press the button, TV-B-Gone takes slightly more than a minute to emit more than 200 popular shutdown codes, like trying every possible combination to open a safe. The instructions include a diatribe against television in general, as if using this product is not merely a prank, but a serious political act. CP]

TV-B-Gone, $20, Available from Amazon. Manufactured by TV B Gone.

Now only if someone could gift this to me! Anyone out there ?
