Went to the Research in Motion Alliance Tour yesterday at the Canada High Commission in London. RIM and CHC London hosted the event to showcase some of RIM’s partners to the mobile and wireless community in the UK.
There were some interesting products, but the demo from Unify4Life was downright amazing. They have developed a series of products that would allow you to control variety of home appliances with your BlackBerry. For example, you can use your BlackBerry to change TV channels, get TV guide on BlackBerry, change music on iPod or other stereo systems. Control your garage door and your home lightning system, heating and air conditioning equipment. The list goes on.
Future plans include developing these products for other mobile devices, such as iPhone and Windows PDAs
