The RedEye is a small IR transmitter box featuring Wi-Fi and a built-in Dock for charging an iPhone, iPhone 3G, or iPod touch.</em></p><p>"<img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1244141313.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Interesting concept, making your iPhone like one of the Harmony Universal Remotes, except with more hardware required. Not all that much more hardware, just an <a href="http://thinkflood.com/products/redeye/what-is-redeye/" target="_blank">infra-red device</a> that communicates to your iphone/ipod touch via WiFi, then transmits an infra-red signal to your hardware in your entertainment center. This is a <a href="http://thinkflood.com/products/redeye/beta-program/" target="_blank">beta program</a>, so they are waiting on approval for their app in the iTunes store, but they have outlined an <a href="http://thinkflood.com/support/redeye/software/" target="_blank">ad-hoc method</a> for getting the app on your iPhone/iPod Touch in the meantime. During the beta period, the price for the system is $119.00 USD. After the beta period ends in the fall, they will bump the price up to $149.00 USD.</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
