Many thanks to Mr. Polley, as he has made all our lives a little easier and happier with his invention.

May he r.i.p. :tombstone: :rose:

Condolences to his family.

He was certainly a pioneer of technology. Without him breaking ground with the remote, we wouldn't have things like the motion controls in games or wireless devices today.

Also, it amuses me greatly that the original remote control was shaped like a gun. It would probably be illegal to sell one of those in a store today.
