RedEye Universal Remotes Help Drive Santaâ€™s Sleigh
Santa’s elves add the power of ThinkFlood’s RedEye to Sleigh Force One
Waltham, MA â€“ December 22, 2010 â€“ ThinkFlood (http://thinkflood.com), maker of RedEye universal remote control products, today announced that RedEye is now a key part of Santaâ€™s sleigh control systems.
Bushy Evergreen, Santaâ€™s head elf of research and development, and inventor of the magic toy-making machine was responsible for installing the RedEye unit and reports that Santa is â€œexceedingly pleasedâ€ with the outcome.
â€œSanta is a real gadget freak,â€ said Bushy Evergreen, head elf of research and development for Santaâ€™s workshop. â€œHe saw the YouTube video with David Phipps using his RedEye to control a 1969 Pontiac GTO and he just had to have one for his ride.â€
Santaâ€™s RedEye unit will be seamlessly integrated into Sleigh Force One, allowing him to lock and unlock the sleigh, control his in-dash A/V system, direct the reindeer and more.
â€œSanta's sleigh is a very high tech vehicle,â€ said Rudolph, Santaâ€™s official sleigh guide since 1939. â€œItâ€™s equipped with the worldâ€™s most powerful on-board computer that communicates with the official command and control center for Sleigh Force One.â€
Santa could not be reached for comment, but his representatives say his RedEye remote control system was delivered in time for this yearâ€™s official Sleigh Force One test flight on Monday, December 20, 2010.
â€œHonestly, we couldnâ€™t believe the order when it was called in,â€ said ThinkFlood co-founder Adam Shapiro. â€œOne of Santaâ€™s Helpers called asking for next-day to the North Pole. You wouldnâ€™t believe the shipping charges.â€
Santaâ€™s Christmas flight will be tracked on Norad (http://www.noradsanta.org/). Watch the YouTube video that inspired Santa on the RedEyeRemote YouTube channel http://thnkfld.com/dQLDLN.
