HippoRemote Pro ~ Wireless Keyboard, Mouse, Remote Control & Gamepad

WHAT IS HIPPOREMOTE? Control your computer with a wave of your hand or a flick of your finger! Impress your audience at speaking engagements or just veg out on the couch. HippoRemote Pro turns your iPhone and iPod touch into a Wi-Fi keyboard, trackpad, and remote control, making it the perfect pocket-sized controller for your computer. HippoRemote works great as a clicker for your Keynote or PowerPoint presentation. Or to control your classroom's interactive whiteboard. In addition, like a high-end universal remote, you can customize the buttons and tailor them to specific apps. This makes it an ideal remote control for your HTPC, whether it's a Mac mini running Plex, a Windows PC running Windows Media Center, or a Linux box running XBMC. HippoRemote Pro also has a gamepad mode, letting you control your favorite PC games. And because it all works over Wi-Fi, you get superior range and no line-of-sight issues compared to traditional remotes. No extra dongles or expensive adapters required.
