    Mini RF Remote

    Hi,
    What about this for remote idea?
    -3"L x 1.5"W x .5"D
    -Wireless RF to a RF-USB receiver
    -Controls basic media functions (Play/Pause, Next,Prev, Stop)
    -Controls volume
    -Can go to a second mode to change media keys into arrow keys
    -has 4 HotKey programmable buttons
    -has soft rubber keys
    -runs on 2 (or maybe 1) AAA battery

    Basically an RF-USB remote that keys can be programmed by an outside application (i.e. hkcontrol "HotKeys XP" or something like it)

    Does anyone know either how to fabricate this, or get a company involved?
    The idea is out there for the taking. SEE ATTACHED DIAGRAM...(ps-I'm not a graphic designer, so get ready to laugh!)

    great idea, I would love to have one for when I am at car shows, just change the settings from far away... I dislike the idea of buttons on the bottom half though. thats where I usually hold a remote and it would be hard to reach them while still holding the remote with one hand.

    there used to be a banner for a mini - RF remote here, but it didn't go to any information. I *****ed about it but nobody responded...

    I'd be interested if somebody could get it done.

    I would not have considered that remote "mini"

    Are you talking about the "media remote"?

    -but that came with software for like $80 so the remote must be available somewhere for less

    Does anyone remember the url that the banner linked to? (want to add it to my archive of carpc info)
