Nintendo Controller Remote
ThinkGeek today listed the officially-licensed Nintendo Controller Universal Remote. Styled after the gamepad used for the console maker's original Famicom system(known elsewhere as the NES), the remote uses the inherent buttons of the 1980s controller to manage functions on most standard TVs. The directional pad is used to adjust both channels and volume, while the Select button changes inputs and Start toggles power. Two AAA batteries (not included) are necessary to use the remote, ThinkGeek says. The remote is in stock today and ships for $20.
