Several years ago a leading web based news content provider published an article about a remote for the television remote that gave the TV junkie the ability to control his remote even if it was lost down the sofa.
Now technology has advanced to another plateau and GB Labs has announced the Remote's Remote Remote, or RRR devise, that can communicate remote commands from anywhere on Earth through a Remote Remote. The RRR devise will be marketed as the 'Intraplanet Remote Remote' to avoid the repeating the word remote, which sounds like stuttering.
So if you are in Tokyo and you want to set your TIVO, or other recording device, in Boise to save the LA Lakers VS Cleveland Cavaliers game, for later viewing, you simply point your RRR at a Satellite to locate your Remote Remote and fire away Remote Remote Remoting. Or if you are at work late, in the frozen north, you can turn up the heat, let the dog out, and start the casserole by pushing a couple of buttons.
GB Labs also announced that the 'Intraplanet Remote Remote', for on planet only, is just the first in a new line of products. Next up is the 'Interplanet Remote Remote', which will work off planet, that will be tested from weather satellites in anticipation of use on the space station and other planets when NASA catches up.
