Obit for Flash-Matic Remote Control's Inventor

Eugene Polley, (1915-2012), inventor of the remote control, has passed away at age 96.

"Polley started work for Zenith back in 1935, straight after graduating from college. He began as a stock boy, then worked on the firm's catalog, then transferred to engineering and worked on radar during World War II.

The invention was soon succeeded by upgrades for TV sets ... and other devices.
