Did you know that programming remotes has been around since 1950? The first television remote control was created by Zenith Radio Corporation and called “Lazy Bones.” It used a mechanical cable to connect with a TV set and change channels or mute sound. Over time, these mechanical designs evolved into today’s digital remotes with advanced features like programmable buttons and voice commands.
