Designing an app that turns a smartphone into a universal remote control isn’t a technological quad somersault off the 3-meter board anymore.

Flyover Innovations, obviously, didn’t want to flop headfirst into the pool of same-old, Bluetooth-connected accessories/apps that command a television, Blu-ray player and DVR. For its first product, the crowdfunded company in Lenexa, Kan., added music-streaming powers to a stout little remote-control accessory named Blumoo. Judges, please note the enhanced degree of difficulty.

But is a $129.99 remote-streamer combo that occupies a smartphone or tablet, Apple and now Android, better than more sophisticated separates like an Apple TV music-video streamer ($99) and Universal Remote’s URC-A6 ($19.99)? Maybe not to this judge, but Blumoo is much cuter than either.
