mennucc1's Journal: The co-inventor of the TV remote, Robert Adler, passed away

Journal by mennucc1
CNN reports that Robert Adler, who co-invented the device that made the couch potato possible, died Thursday at 93. Adler was a prolific inventor, earning more than 180 U.S. patents. He was best known for his 1956 Zenith Space Command remote control, which helped make TV a truly sedentary pastime. Few people today would imagine that that remote was ultrasound, and did not need batteries to operate.
