The new remote control from Samsung can also be charged using radio waves in the home.

Everyone knows remote controls with replaceable batteries. It is possible to operate them with TV, Hi-Fi tower or air conditioning. Replacing the batteries is easy and usually needs to be repeated every few months. However, few people think about how much electronic waste the remote controls are responsible for. That’s why companies are figuring out how to replace disposable batteries as environmentally friendly as possible. Rechargeable Li-Ion batteries are a simple alternative. However, Samsung came up with a much more sophisticated solution.

Last year, he introduced a remote control with a solar panel that can charge the built-in battery from an ordinary table lamp. This year has pushed the bar a little higher and bragged about the new Eco Remote concept, which can use radio waves to generate electricity. In other words, you only need a wireless network and a Wi-Fi router and the controller stays charged at all times. If the radio waves are still out of range, they can still be used by a solar panel or cable charging.
