Descripción completa


This innovation comes after finding that TV remote controllers, both hotels and hospitals, are a "source of bacteria" since they are used by a lot of people and are difficult to clean.

This innovation comes up to solve this very important problem dealing with harmful germs within multi-users/players environments,

It should be added that main renewal causes of TV remote controllers are due to theft, loss, damage, deterioration or just because of TV change.

A Spanish company has developed and patented a novel biodegradable TV remote controller to meet these needs and turn them into an opportunity..

This novel TV remote controller is not universal and must be programmed as a first step by the Spanish SME. It has been specially designed for businesses with a large number of TV devices like hospitals and hotels mainly.

The device is made of biodegradable layers with conductive ink. Layers are separated by vegetal paint.

The TV remote controller does not include any metal. Just paper and graphite ecological ink. A small battery has been integrated. This battery can be retired easily for recycling.

Main features:
* Thin and ergonomics.
* Disposable and recyclable
* Germ free.
* The device can be planted since it contains seeds.
* The device can include personalised advertising on its back (as shown on pictures)

The Spanish SME is seeking final users for commercial agreements with technical assistance in terms of:
