#1786: RemoteRemote

The TV remote control in a typical hotel room is considered dirtier than the toilet, sink handles, door handles, and even the bedspread.

Today’s invention removes the bacterial infection problem by offering a remote which is operated by one’s feet.

This would take the form of a footstool with a number of big buttons in the surface, modeled after a simplified remote and operable with shoes still on.

The stool would allow the actual remote to be inserted into a slot and there would be direct mechanical links between pressing the pedals and the buttons on the embedded remote.
