ROCKLEIGH, N.J. –
a waterproof remote control that
can be used in hot tubs or hospitals.
The disc-shaped, aptly named UFO
waterproof remote can float and is
geared toward outdoor environments,
such as use around pools, hot tubs or
yachts. It measures 1.3 by 5.1 inches
and weighs 9 ounces.
Alternatively, the remote can be
used in hospitals and operating
rooms since it can also be submerged
in sanitizing liquid. The UFO is completely
submersible at depths up to
10 feet, according to the company.
Features include an active-matrix
2.8-inch color LCD display, customizable
menus with full-color icons,
a rugged and rubberized outer skin,
and 2.4GHz RF technology.
The range is listed at 200 feet indoors,
and this can be extended to
1,000 feet outdoors with the optional
extended range RF wireless gateway.
It’s priced at $1,500.
