Prof. Vishal from  Centre of IT in Building Science, IIIT-H gave a very interesting talk. It added a whole new dimension to the things that can be done with the mobile phone.

The idea of Mobile as a Universal Remote is not new but the thought that your mobile will talk to the buildings is definitely interesting.

The best part of using mobile as a remote control is that you doesnt have to learn new interfaces. I personally have found it very irritating whenever I am at a new place and I have to get my way through a new remote control.

And remote control clutter is surely increasing, there should be a way to get rid of them.

A demo was also given by Prof Vishal and was appreciated by the audience.
