Turn your Android phone into a TV remote, anime voice actress included

Toshiba just launched something quite remarkable  to the big public today (mainly the Japanese that is): A brand new Android app that turns your Android based phone into a full blow TV remote. It’s not just a remote to swap channel or record your favorite show, no no this v2.1-or-higher droid app is “pimped” with the voices of 6 of the best voice acresses in the animed business. Be sure to check that one out if you own an android phone and are somewhat into anime!

TV and recorder can operate on a smartphone just like a normal remote control with features. You can also do unique gesture-based touch panels.

These 6 voice actresses are:

Maaya Uchida
(Miyake, Seikon no Qwaser, Akiba’s Trip, Ookami san, World God Only Knows, …)
Satomi Sato
(K-on!!, Mayoi Neko Overrun!, Ookami-san, Ore no Imouto, Dragon Ball Z, Yumeiro Patissiere, To Aru no Kagaku no Railgun, …)
Ayana Taketatsu
(K-on!!, KissXsis, Yumeiro Patissiere, Baka to Test, MM!, Highschool of the Dead, Ore no Imouto, Wold God Only knows, …)
Aki Toyosaki
(K-on!!, Hanasaku Iroha, Mitsudomoe, Ano Hana, Softtenni, Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou, Hyakka Ryouran Samurai Girls, Maid Sama, …)
Yoko Hikasa
(K-on!!, Toradora, Ikki Tousen, Sora no Otoshimono, Chu-Bra!!, WORKING, Seitokai Yakuindomo, Moshidora, Kore wa Zombie desu ka, …)
Madoka Yonezawa
(K-on!!, Ladies vs Butlers,Strike Witches, Maid Sama!, Ah! My Goddess, Pokemon Diamond & Pearl, Gin Tama, …)

Most actresses have quite a big portfolio, so we only listed the series you might be most familiar with. It also seems Toshiba likes K-on!!.

    RF/Bluetooth only, or will there be an IR adapter available?

    • Ike

      I doubt that will become available. It’s a common problem that few smartphones still support IR, and Bluetooth has it’s ups & downs depending on the appliance. Most new tv’s (2008 and on) support bluetooth, but I guess that’s not helping your cause right now.
