Remote Control Day

All hail the mighty remote control! Doesn’t it seem as though whoever holds the remote control, holds all the power as well? The celebratory day for this crucial technological invention falls on June 29 each year.

The first remote control ever was developed by Zenith Electronics Corporation in 1950 and was called “Lazy Bones”. It had a cable wire attaching it to the television, and many people complained about the inconvenience of the cable and how easy it was to trip over it. The first wireless remote control was introduced by Zenith in 1955.
