Remote Control Inventor Dies (2.19.07)

Robert Adler has passed away in Boise, Idaho at the ripe old age of 93. Working for Zenith Electronic Corp. he created the Zenith Space Commander in 1956, bringing an end to relaxation-troubling trips to the TV in order to change the channel.

The story is too old to be commented.

I remember back when I was a kid, we had one of those old televisions with no remote. In order to change the channel, someone would have to turn the dial. This was the very early 80s...yeah we were poor.
