Digital Lifestyle Outfitters (DLO) on Wednesday introduced the iDirect Remote Control. Compatible with Apple iPods that feature Dock Connectors, the device enables iPod users to wirelessly control their music player from across the room. The iDirect Remote Control costs US$49.99 and is shipping now.
The iDirect Remote Control includes a compact infrared remote control interface with buttons for play/pause, track advance, return and volume control. The IR receiver connects to the top of the iPod, and will work with universal “learning” remote controls, if you’d prefer not to keep track of another remote. The receiver is powered by the iPod, so it can be used on the go. It also features a pass-through headphone jack, so it can be used with some FM transmitters, cassette adapters or other interfaces.
