Meet the SPIN remote: an app-enabled smart remote that lets you control your lights, change the channel, change the volume, and more. It sends out infrared signals in every direction and learns from your existing remote controls. It also talks to your smart devices via Bluetooth. You can use the companion app to create your own presets and customize your experience.
The SPIN remote has various sensors to detect motion, rotation, orientation and touch. Think about all the possibilities here. You can find the product on Kickstarter.
