TV remote controls have had a long and illustrious history over the years. The earliest television remote controls were connected to TV sets by a wire. One of the world’s first wireless remote controls was created by renowned Serbian-American inventor Nikola Tesla, who unveiled the device at New York City’s Madison Square Garden in 1898.
The device was ahead of it’s time, and a commercially viable solution wouldn’t show up until the “Flashmatic” in 1955. Unfortunately, the device was rushed out to replace cable use and could be affected by sunlight and lamps.
