'Power A' Case Turns Your iPhone into a TV Remote

The peripheral marketplace offers companies a fantastic opportunity to capitalize on the success of massively popular items. As is often the case, though, those peripherals are typically lacking in the performance department. An upcoming add-on for iPhones looks like it may actually counter that trend of inadequacy.

The sleek two-piece Power A case fits snugly over the iPhone, and transforms it into a universal infrared (IR) remote control. Multiple devices can be controlled from one screen, and the IR transmitter is "portable and detachable." According to Gizmodo, the covering will reportedly cost $60 upon release, but the corresponding app will be free, and free updates and enhancements are also expected to soon follow.
