Remote Control for iPhone, iPod or iPad

In 2009, Kolila was given the opportunity to work with one of the leading suppliers of Apple accessories on one of their exciting new products. The product allows an iPhone, iPod touch or an iPad to be used as a universal remote control, allowing the user to control several consumer electronic devices, with just one remote.

A software application installed on the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad allows data to be transmitted, via Bluetooth® wireless technology, through a unit containing infra-red transmitters that direct a signal around the room to the TV, stereo, multimedia system, air conditioning unit, or whatever has been programmed.

Kolila’s part in this project was to develop the PCB design and layout (suitable for final production) and the embedded software that sits in the transmitter unit.

The Bluetooth® functionality for this device was provided by a module based on CSR’s BC5-MM chip with an application based around the TrueWireless SDK 2009 RC4.0.

New Look Website & Logo

This week sees the launch of Kolila’s new look website and company logo, which we think gives the company a fresh new look and feel.

The website is designed to make it easy for us to update with news, articles and case studies, and therefore easy for you to keep up to date with what’s going on at Kolila.

Our intention is for this website to be constantly evolving. We will be adding more information and case studies over the coming weeks. So please have a look around and let us know what you think by adding a comment below…

The website, including all the graphics and the logo were designed and constructed by designer Andrea Cristofaro. To get in touch with Andrea, or to see more examples of his work, please visit his website
