Mashed Pixel Surc Turns Your iPhone Into A Universal Remote Control

Infrared emitters aren’t new ideas, since they can easily turn your mobile phone into a universal remote. Now Mashed Pixel is taking things one step further by integrating the idea into a case – the Surc. Just pop your iPhone 3G, 3GS or iPhone 4 into it and download the free accompanying app and you’re good to go. Of course, aside from giving your iPhone some added functionality, the other benefit is that the phone will get some additional protection against bumps and scratches. It won’t come cheap, though, and you’ll need to shell out $69.95 to pre-order it, with initial shipments expected to arrive around Q1 of 2011.
