Sideclick remote attachment adds more buttons, sees campaign goal within reach


Sideclick is an elegant solution to the remote clutter that plagues your living room. If you missed my first post about this Kickstarter campaign, it’s a device that attaches to your Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick remote which adds several programable buttons that allow you to control your TV and other devices without ever putting down your Fire TV remote. Since launching the campaign last month, the Sideclick folks have been listening to their backer’s feedback and have decided to increase the button count of the original design from 6 buttons to 7 or 8. They’ve also gotten in touch to let me know that AFTVnews readers are their 4th highest source of backers. Way to go! They’ve thrown in a pair of extra Sidelclicks to my original order as a thanks, which I will give away to AFTVnews readers if/when the campaign gets funded. The campaign is now two-thirds of the way to it’s goal with just 17 days to go. Tell your Fire TV (or Roku/Apple TV) owning friends about the campaign and lets help push them over the edge.

    Nice idea, but I wouldn’t say “Sideclick is an elegant solution to the remote clutter that plagues your living room” – that’s what universal remotes are for. One of those plus FLIRC = all the buttons you could need especially in SPMC where you can tell the remote to do Alt-1 and have SPMC know this is a shortcut to the TV show library, for example.
