Designtechnica has reviewed the One For All Kameleon Remote Control:
The Kameleon remote control, made by One For All, is one of the best remote controls out there. This is a dynamic controller with a changing overlay that displays controls for whatever device you’re using. You can switch among eight devices and control them individually. The Kameleon should be considered by anyone with a lot of home theater or home audio equipment; it will give you a more enjoyable movie watching experience. Besides, you’ll almost never have to leave the couch again.
Features and Design
When inactive, the Kameleon remote sits on your table as a mysterious blue device. When you pick it up, it automatically turns on. Immediately, bright, crisp controls pop up and the selected device will be animated. You’re then free to use the remote. When you’re done, just place it on a flat surface, wait a second, and the remote turns off. This feature is not only great for party tricks, but helps conserve the 4 AAA batteries needed to power it.
How long do the AAA batteries last? It depends on how you use the Kameleon remote. The above-mentioned feature can be turned off so that the remote doesn’t turn on until pressed, or it can be on all the time. If you decide to use the motion-sensing feature, take care of the remote by putting it on a side table. Putting the remote on your sofa, where it will turn on every time you plop down to watch TV, is a bad idea. However, if you use this remote carefully, you’ll find yourself getting over a month of use from the batteries.
