ZephIR Joins The OS X Club With Prerelease Software

From The Expo Floor - ZephIR Joins The OS X Club With Prerelease Software

by , 10:00 AM EST, January 10th, 2002

studioZee, the makers of the ZephIR universal custom remote control, performed the first public demonstration of their Mac OS X software at this week's MacWorld Expo. For those unfamiliar with the product, the ZephIR system consists of an infrared transmitter/receiver and accompanying software that turns your Mac into a remote control on steroids.

The ZephIR Now for OS X

We were fortunate enough to have Mike Sims, one of the ZephIR creators, give us a demonstration of their prerelease OS X software. We were able to successfully create a new remote control definition, teach it some keys from an actual remote control, and then move to a screen where we could create our own graphical representation of a remote control. We then tried to create a remote control macro, when the prerelease nature of the software evidenced itself with an error message and the program quitting. But this is to be expected from prerelease software, so we're sure this will be fixed in the final version.
