Sideclick, the unsuccessful Kickstart project that set out to reduce your remote control clutter by attaching a set of 8 programmable buttons to any Fire TV or Fire TV Stick remote, will be relaunching their campaign tonight, July 15th, at 10pm Eastern. There will be a limited number of “Super Early Bird” and “Early Bird” discounted units offered, so mark your calendar or yell at Alexa/Siri/Google/Cortana to remind you to be online tonight when the doors open. You’ll be able to find the new campaign here once it goes live.
The improved Sideclick design now has 8 programmable buttons instead of 6. It also uses a new clipping mechanism which lets you use the exact same Sideclick remote with Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, Roku, Apple TV, and Nexus Player remotes. Each streaming box remote now has its own custom clip, instead of an entirely unique Sideclick remote.
