TV Remote Controls

Most of us are familiar with the term "Couch Potatoes", and it was because of the invention of the TV remote control that this expression became so popular. Prior to its creation, if you wanted to change the channel on your television, you had to get up and manually move the dial on the TV.

Of course, this phenomenon seems almost impossible to believe for today's generation that are used to flipping through hundreds of channels instantly trying to find something that they really want to watch. Without question, the TV remote control has made using our television sets much more convenient and enjoyable.

The first TV remote control was called the Flash-Matic and it was introduced in the 1955 and used a beam of light to change the channel. Today's devices are far more sophisticated and provide many more options when compared to the earliest models.

Quite a while ago, the beam of light was replaced with infrared (IR) lights, which allowed the manufacturers to build in quite a few more useful functions. If you are like so many of us that really appreciates watching television, just try and imagine what it would be like without a TV remote control.
