So you pop in one of your favorite DVDs. You got popcorn cooking and you dimmed the lights.
But then you must grab the TV remote and change the input. Then you have to grab the DVD

How The Sevenhugs Remote Works
Smart Remote uses Sevenhugs’ patent-pending Point & Control technology to recognize

sensor along with the indoor positioning program to track its orientation. This allows the remote
to adjust to different devices within 3D space.
