Lily McCauley could never find the remote in her home. Sick of looking, she created a way to track it and entered it into the Bendigo Inventor Awards, reports Bendigo Advertiser.
“I got sick of looking for the remote in the ironing basket or under the couch. When I want to watch TV I just want to flick the remote, I don’t want to have to look for the remote.”
Lily said the tracer was very simple. “It’s just a two-piece device. You have one part that’s the sensor and you connect that to the remote and the other part of the main sensor.
“That has the button on it and you just click the button and find the remote player and you have a sensor that’s connected.”
