For $188, you can convert your iPhone 3G/3GS and iPod Touch into a universal remote control with ThinkFlood's RedEye. This nifty gizmo comprises custom software that runs on Apple gear and an infrared blaster doubling as a charging dock.

RedEye operates through Wi-Fi and offers most high-end remote functions. These include activity-based macro programming such as "watch DVD," which fires a string of commands, learning capability for added product compatibility and Web-downloadable codes that keep your RedEye applications up-to-date.

RedEye's most unique propositions, however, are its multitouch gesture and accelerometer support. Instead of just tapping the soft keys, you can rock or flip the iPhone or iPod to toggle TV channels, adjust volumes, and so on. Check out the following videos to find out more.
