    Simple design solutions for simple people

    My entire family has a complete inability to turn on the TV downstairs. The concept of 3 remote controls is beyond their collective grasp (1 for the TV, 1 for the sound system and 1 for the decoder box).

    This problem reached an all-time low this morning when my sister, who was coming out to us for dinner, phoned ahead to get me to turn on the TV for her before i left.

    Coincidentally, i also found the best solution ever to this problem today on a design blog.



    I made my own versions of these. 1 of the remotes now only allows access to the power button. The other one allows access only to volume controls.
    Subtlety is my middle name... and first and last in case you didn't get the point.

    I could do with one of those for my DVD player - it's a recorder as well as a player and it's got about a million buttons!

    Do they come in a variety of attractive colours and are they waterproof for those juice/coffee/tea spillages?
