Pop Up Microlites Help You See Your Remote in the Dark

 |  |  |  |  |  |  November 24, 2010


Darkness is good for sleeping and watching movies. But you know what it’s bad for? Seeing stuff.

Obviously, the fix for seeing things in the dark is light. If you want to see lots of stuff inside, you turn on the main lights in a room. If you only want to see something small, a flashlight would be sufficient. You don’t want to carry a flashlight around everywhere with you, so a good solution is to strap a tiny little light to everything you’d want to see, right? Apparently that is the idea behind these Pop Up Microlites.

Let’s say you’ve settled in for a nice evening of watching movies in the dark, but then the phone rings and you need to pause the movie. You could grab the remote, feel for the pause button (or use the light from the TV to see it)  and then press it. Or, you could attach one of these ugly little $10 Pop-up Microlites beforehand, so you can pop up the light and see the pause button.

I’m sure there are good uses for this product, but I’m just not buying it with the whole remote thing. If you’re that concerned about seeing the buttons, go buy yourself a cheap universal remote with backlit buttons. Sure, it’ll take a few extra minutes to program, but it won’t be half as ugly.
